This book has been carefully designed to provide a contemporary introduction to the fundamental genetic processes which occur in bacteriophages, bacteria, yeasts and fungi. Considerable advances in our understanding of the genetics of microbes have been made in recent years and applications of microbes to environment and industry in particular have enlarged tremendously. This self sufficient text provides a systematic exposition to the subject of microbial genetics. Use of simple and lucid language is the main characteristics of the book.
