This is the first edition of a book related on Campylobacter published by the French Society of Microbiology. The content in this book provides essential, specific updated knowledge on this foodborne pathogen known today to be the first bacterial cause of foodborne infectious disease in most countries. A true monograph, written in a didactic spirit by 18 experts in various fields of bacteriology, this book contains 9 chapters. Each chapter includes fundamental and practical information useful for an in-depth knowledge of this micro-organism in its intimate mechanisms allowing its transmission, diagnosis, detection, survival or pathogenesis, but also the elements and factors useful for its control in terms of public health.
This book is intended for a wide audience concerned with the microbiological safety of food: students at universities, agri-food engineering schools and veterinary schools, teachers and trainers, but also quality managers in food processing industries, managers and technicians of food analysis laboratories and official control or evaluation bodies.
Book coordinated by: Nabila Haddad, Doctor in Microbiology, Lecturer at Oniris, Raouf Tareb, Doctor in Microbiology, Lecturer at Oniris & Michel Federighi, Professor of Veterinary Public Health at the National Veterinary School of Alfort.
