This seminal tome, as mighty as it is weighty, really raised the bar for would-be researchers in this critical field of molecular microbiology. I will never tire of reading the author's warm, engaging, yet insightful and masterful descriptions as, page by page, he delves deeper and deeper into the enigmatic gene "gerT".
What does this gene do? For years researchers have debated endlessly about the role of "gerN" - a proven Na+/K- antiporter and its impact into the germination of Bacillus cereus. But the discovery of its homolog, gerT, almost shook the academic institution to the ground. BOOM!
I was hooked after the first page. Boom after Boom after… Read more
