Microbiology covers the scope and sequence requirements for a single-semester microbiology course for non-majors. The book presents the core concepts of microbiology with a focus on applications for careers in allied health. The pedagogical features of the text make the material interesting and accessible while maintaining the career-application focus and scientific rigor inherent in the subject matter. Microbiology’s art program enhances students’ understanding of concepts through clear and effective illustrations, diagrams, and photographs.
Microbiology is produced through a collaborative publishing agreement between OpenStax and the American Society for Microbiology Press. The book aligns with the curriculum guidelines of the American Society for Microbiology.
This is the highest-quality affordably-priced printed OpenStax textbook available. As OpenStax's premier print partner, XanEdu prints all OpenStax textbooks in hardcover full-color versions, and a paperback version with B&W interior pages. The hardcover and paperback versions are exactly the same as the free OpenStax digital textbook which is available for free digital download at the OpenStax website, but as many students prefer the convenience of a printed textbook, we work directly with OpenStax to provide affordable print textbook options for students.
