Summary Learn all the microbiology and basic immunology concepts you need to know for your courses and exams. Learn about infections in the context of major body systems and understand why these are environments in which microbes can establish themselves, flourish, and give rise to pathological changes. This systems-based approach to microbiology employs integrated and case-based teaching that places the 'bug parade' into a clinical context
