Description

The book on Trends in Quorum Sensing and Quorum Quenching: New Perspectives and Applications focuses on the recent advances in the field of quorum sensing in bacteria and the novel strategies for quorum sensing inhibition. The topics covered are multidisciplinary and wide ranging from quorum sensing phenomenon in pathogenic bacteria, food spoilers and agriculturally relevant bacteria. The potential application of quorum sensing inhibitors including small molecules, bioactives, natural compounds and quorum quenching enzymes in controlling bacterial infections, in aquaculture and biofouling are also discussed. Special focus is given to exploring quorum sensing inhibitors from microbes and flora inhabiting biodiversity rich regions including tropical rain forests, various tropical soils and oceans.

Key features:

  • Covers the fundamental aspects and the progresses and the challenges in the field and the future trend
  • Reviews quorum sensing in gram positive and gram negative bacteria of clinical, agricultural and industrial relevance
  • Discusses the application of quorum sensing inhibitors from lab to clinical and environmental settings
  • Provides comprehensive coverage on bacterial signaling mechanism
