Understanding Pathogen Behaviour: Virulence, Stress Response by M. Griffiths

By M. Griffiths

Pathogens reply dynamically to their setting. figuring out their behaviour is necessary either as a result of proof of elevated resistance to demonstrated sanitation and maintenance thoughts, and due to the elevated use of minimum processing applied sciences that are extra susceptible to the advance of resistance. knowing pathogen behaviour summarises the wealth of contemporary examine and its implications for the nutrition industry.

After introductory chapters on methods of analysing and modelling pathogens, half one summarises present learn on what determines pathogenicity, pressure reaction, edition and resistance. half experiences the behaviour of specific pathogens, reviewing virulence, rigidity reaction and resistance mechanisms in such pathogens as Salmonella, E.coli and Campylobacter. the ultimate a part of the e-book assesses how pathogens react and adapt to specific stresses from warmth therapy and the consequences of low temperature to using disinfectants and sanitisers.

With its special editor and foreign staff of individuals, knowing pathogen behaviour is a typical reference for the foodstuff in making sure nutrition safety.

  • Summarises the wealth of contemporary examine in pathogen behaviour
