Biology of Foodborne Parasites, Hardback Book

Biology of Foodborne Parasites Hardback

Edited by Lihua Xiao, Una Ryan, Yaoyu Feng

Part of the Food Microbiology series

Description

While a number of introductory books on basic and molecular biology are available, none highlight the foodborne parasitic pathogens.

Until now. A state-of-the-art review, Biology of Foodborne Parasites charts significant progress and outlines key biological techniques applied to foodborne parasitic pathogens research.

The book covers basic biology, genetics and genomics, epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, control, and prevention.

It showcases recent research that can then be used to spark further breakthroughs. The book addresses challenging issues in food pathogen detection.

It details individual foodborne protists and helminthes, with each chapter following a similar format for a consistent presentation of information.

It discusses topics ranging from basic biology, genetics and genomics, molecular detection and typing, and pathogenesis to epidemiology, molecular epidemiology, treatment and prevention, among other current concerns.

It also details the methods used to diagnose the infection, characterize the pathogen, and detect parasites in three food commodities: meats, water, and fresh produce. With chapters written by experts in their respective fields, the book presents a reliable roadmap for future development of improved, innovative biological and molecular methods for analysis of foodborne parasitic pathogens.

A handy, comprehensive reference on all aspects of biology of foodborne parasites, it highlights research needs and directions, helping you develop advanced diagnostic tools and new intervention measures.
