Microbiology books.

Post by Mjhavok » Sun Sep 24, 2006 4:58 pm

I am currently in my second year of a Microbiology Degree and was wondering what good books exist that I could buy. Books that perhaps people further ahead doing a degree of this type have used and found helpful.

Thanks

I done an unit in Microbiology in my 2nd yr (now in my third) and found Brock's Biology of Microorganisms quite helpful but it does depend on the syllabus. I advise you ask a lecturer.

Yeah, Brock is a nice reference. But it really depends on the Micro subjects and what approach your professors are taking. Investing in books are sound specially if you don't have immediate access to internet, but I agree with you, recent developmnets in microbiology are more readily accessed via the net, and the animations of concepts tends to shorten the learning curve of different micro subjects.

Can't remember the title/author off-hand though.
