Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

When substances move across a membrane without interacting specifically with
a carrier protein in the membrane, the process is called passive diffusion. Gases
and water, and some non-ionized organic acids, go in and out of the cell by ...
Examples of cytoplasmic membrane proteins include cytochromes and other
respiratory enzymes as well as carrier proteins. Periplasmic proteins include
binding proteins, lipoproteins and various degradative enzymes such as
Following attachment to and penetration of a new host cell, all viruses show the
same general life cycle (Fig. 2.2). Viruses induce the biosynthesis of virus
proteins and replication of the virus genome. Typically, the enzymes that are
Non-structural proteins are formed during early translation. The virus genome is
replicated (IV) and new virus structural proteins are formed (V). New virus
particles are assembled (VI) and released by lysis of the infected cell (VII).
