Comprehensive examination of the current understanding of pathogen adaptation and microevolution. This book introduces the rapidly evolving field of genome plasticity, presents the latest research findings, and explores the relevance of these findings to infection and infection control. It explores bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites from the aspect of host genome plasticity and its impact on infection.
