Summary
Comprehensive examination of the current understanding of pathogen adaptation and microevolution. Introduces the rapidly evolving field of genome plasticity, presents the latest research findings, and explores the relevance of these findings to infection and infection control. Compiles and analyzes current investigations on the genome fluidity of pathogenic microbes. Explores bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites from the aspect of host genome plasticity and its impact on infection
