Containing 57 thoroughly class-tested exercises, Laboratory Experiments in Microbiology, Tenth Edition, provides engaging labs with instruction on performing basic microbiology techniques and applications for undergraduate students in diverse areas, including the biological sciences, allied health sciences, agriculture, environmental science, nutrition, pharmacy, and various pre-professional programs. The perfect companion to Tortora/Funke/Case’s Microbiology: An Introduction or any introductory microbiology text, the Tenth Edition features an updated art program and a full-color design, integrating valuable micrographs throughout each exercise. Additionally, many of the illustrations have been re-rendered in a modern, realistic, three-dimensional style to better visually engage students. Laboratory Reports for each exercise have been enhanced with new Clinical Applications questions, as well as questions relating to Hypotheses or Expected Results. Experiments have been refined throughout the manual and the Tenth Edition includes an extensively revised exercise on transformation in bacteria using pGLO to introduce students to this important technique.
