Review quote

From the reviews:

"This book presents detailed methods and protocols for the application of various analytical techniques to Salmonella research. It is aimed at geneticists, microbiologists, public health scientists, researchers and students. The book contains 17 chapters ... ." (International Food Information Service, December, 2007)
"This is an interesting and very informative book that covers a broad range of methods in Salmonella research. Each chapter contains a useful introduction outlining in which field of research the methods are most likely to be useful. ... Clear diagrams and photographic illustrations enrich the written text material. This book is not simply a list of laboratory methods, but it is also a valuable guide that will allow bench scientists to choose the most appropriate methodological approach to solve specific research questions." (Pietro Mastroeni, Microbiology Today, May, 2008)
"The book provides quite a wide range of protocols from different fields of Salmonella research which in most cases can also be generalized for other members of the family Enterobacteriaceae. Each chapter provides a short overview of the topic which is followed by detailed protocol description. ... for those interested in entering an interesting field of Salmonella research I can recommend this book as a valuable source of a wide range of protocols enabling anybody to start from the very beginning." (I. Rychlik, Folia Microbiologia, Vol. 53 (3), 2008)
