The true extent of prokaryote diversity, encompassing the spectrum of variability among bacteria, remains unknown. Current research efforts focus on understanding why prokaryote diversification occurs, its underlying mechanisms, and its likely impact. The dynamic nature of the prokaryotic world, and continuing advances in the technological tools available make this an important area and hence this book will appeal to a wide variety of microbiologists. Its coverage ranges from studies of prokaryotes in specialized environmental niches to broad examinations of prokaryote evolution and diversity, and the mechanisms underlying them. Topics include: bacteria of the gastrointestinal tract, unculturable organisms in the mouth and in the soil, organisms from extreme environments, the diversity of archaea and their phages, comparative genomics and the emergence of pathogens, the spread of genomic islands between clinical and environmental organisms, minimal genomes needed for life, horizontal gene transfer, phenotypic innovation, and patterns and extent of biodiversity.

Gene transcription has remained at the forefront of modern biomedical science due to genome-sequencing projects, the renewed interest in the role of chromatin, the availability of high-resolution structures of key parts of the transcriptional machineries and new insights into the physiological role of transcription. This collection of reviews, based on presentations at the Biochemical Society's 2005 Annual Symposium, provides an overview of the current state of research into gene expression-mechanisms.

There is growing awareness that important environmental transformations are catalysed, mediated and influenced by microorganisms, and geomicrobiology can be defined as the influence of microorganisms on geologic processes. This is probably the most rapidly growing area of microbiology at present, combining environmental and molecular microbiology together with significant areas of mineralogy, geochemistry and hydrology. This volume focuses on the function of microorganisms in the environment and their influence on 'global' processes. It will include state-of-the art approaches to visualisation, culture and identification, community interactions and gene transfer, and diversity studies in relation to key processes. This overview for researchers and graduate students will represent environmental microbiology in its broadest sense and help to promote exciting collaborations between microbiologists and those in complementary physical and chemical disciplines.

Virus and prion diseases remain a major public health threat, in both developed and developing countries. The worldwide HIV pandemic is but one example of a newly emerged virus disease; other potential threats come from exotic viruses such as SARS, Ebola and Hantaan viruses. Older human viruses such as influenza, papilloma, herpes and the hepatitis viruses still cause major health problems. Furthermore, as well as causing acute infections, some viruses may also establish persistent infections which can lead to the development of chronic diseases, including cancer. This symposium book covers central factors that influence the pathogenicity of virus and prion infections. Topics range from innate and adaptive immune responses and virus evasion of host defences to details of selected virus host interactions, including those involving dengue virus, HIV, influenza viruses, coronaviruses, hepatitis C virus, herpesviruses, papillomaviruses, African swine fever virus and poxviruses.

Several billion people are at daily risk of life threatening vector-borne diseases such as malaria, trypanosomiasis and dengue. This volume describes the way in which the causal pathogens of such diseases interact with the vectors that transmit them. It details the elegant biological adaptations that have enabled pathogens to live with their vectors and, in some circumstances, to control them. This knowledge has led to novel preventative strategies in the form of antibiotics and new vaccines which are targeted not at the pathogen itself but at its specific vector.

Microbes have co-evolved with other organisms for eons, to the extent that some are so acquainted with host cell biology that they subvert key cellular processes with unrivalled precision. Pathogenic bacteria and viruses, for example, are extremely adept at intercepting host signal transduction pathways, re-routing protein traffic, remodelling the cytoskeleton and influencing host cell differentiation or death. Symbionts and commensal organisms, too, have evolved sophisticated strategies to derive benefit from the host environment without eliciting responses that compromise their viability. This volume reviews this exciting new discipline, reflecting both the recent explosion of knowledge and the wider insights into fundamental cellular processes that are provided. The authors, chosen for their contributions to the field, cover all the salient aspects using a range of model systems.

This title is the published proceedings of the Biochemical Society meeting held at Imperial College London in December 2002. The meeting brought together international leaders in the field to discuss contemporary advances in protease research and was dedicated to Dr Alan J Barrett to honour his research achievements and contributions to the field of proteolytic enzymes on his 65th birthday. This book aims to provide an overview of contemporary research on the roles of proteolytic enzymes in biological systems. Contributions come from some of the leading scientists in this field and cover areas such as the proteasome and antigen presentation; extracellular and pericellular proteolysis; inflammation and tissue destruction; protease inhibitors and potential for therapy; intracellular proteolysis and apoptosis; and proteolysis and cell migration.
