Summary
Annotation examines evolution of microbial pathogenesis, capitalizing on explosion of knowledge of molecular mechanisms and microbial genome sequencing;covers general concepts of microbial evolution including gene acquisition, gene loss, and concept of microbial species;presents information on broad areas of evolution of pathogenesis, including evolution of pathogenic microbes in soil, evolution of microbe & ndash;plant interactions, human specific pathogens, zoonotic infections, biofilm formation in the environment and pathogenesis, and co & ndash;evolution of pathogens and the immune system;considers evolution of pathogenic systems found in a variety of microbes or specific subsets of pathogens
