A streamlined approach to master microbiology

Brock Biology of Microorganisms is the leading majors microbiology text on the market. It sets the standard for impeccable scholarship, accuracy, and strong coverage of ecology, evolution, and metabolism. The 15th edition seamlessly integrates the most current science, paying particular attention to molecular biology and the genomic revolution. It introduces a flexible, more streamlined organisation with a consistent level of detail and comprehensive art program. 

 

Pearson MyLab™ is the world's leading online self-study, homework, tutorial and assessment product designed with a single purpose in mind: to improve the results of all higher education students, one student at a time.

Please note: The duration of access to a MyLab is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study. To access the MyLab you need a Course ID from your instructor.
