About this Book

This book is a unique synthesis of the major concepts and methods in bacterial population genetics in infectious disease, a field that is now about 35 yrs old.  Emphasis is given to explaining population-level processes that shape genetic variation in bacterial populations and statistical methods of analysis of bacterial genetic data.

  • A "how to" of bacterial population genetics, which covers an extremely large range of organisms
  • Expanding area of science due to high-throughput genome sequencing of bacterial pathogens
  • Covers both fundamental approaches to analyzing bacterial population structures with conceptual background in bacterial population biology
  • Detailed treatment of statistical methods
