Experienced and authoritative experts review the most important innovations and their biotechnological applications. An interdisciplinary view that examines the area from molecular biology, genome-, transcriptome- and proteome-wide perspectives, and looks at the ecological aspects and systems biology approaches.
CampylobacterAdapted from Irving Nachamkin and Patricia Guerry in Foodborne Pathogens: Microbiology and Molecular Biology
Campylobacter: Campylobacter spp., primarily Campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni is one of the major causes of bacterial gastroenteritis in the U.S. and worldwide. Campylobacter infection is primarily a foodborne illness, usually without complications; however, serious sequelae such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome occur in a small subset of infected patients. Detection of Campylobacter jejuni in clinical samples is readily accomplished by culture and non-culture methods, although improvements in diagnostic approaches are needed. A significant body of knowledge exists on the epidemiology of Campylobacter infections; however, much less is known about the mechanism of disease, despite over 2 decades of research.
