Key Features

  • Offers genus-by-genus classification of infectious diseases along with short, clinically-oriented descriptions of each genus
  • Presents comprehensive lists of infectious species for each genera and identifies diseases caused by each species
  • Compiled and written by a well-known pathologist with extensive experience in diagnosing human infectious diseases

Description

In the past few decades, there have been great advances in the phylogenetic classification of infectious diseases of man. Taxonomic Guide to Infectious Diseases organizes this information into a standard biological classification and provides a short, clinically-oriented description of every genus (class) of infectious organism. It covers an overview of modern taxonomy, including a description of the kingdoms of life and the evolutionary principles underlying the class hierarchy, and each following chapter will describe one phylum and the genera that contain infectious species. Taxonomic Guide to Infectious Diseases is written in an engaging, narrative style, providing the reader with an easy to digest yet clinically-oriented story of the pathogenic features of each genus. Designed for researchers, clinicians and students of infectious diseases, medical microbiology and pathology.

Readership

Medical and graduate students in infectious disease, microbiology and medical microbiology programs; clinicians dealing in infectious disease; researchers and clinical investigators working in infectious disease, medical microbiology and pathology

Jules Berman

Jules Berman holds two bachelor of science degrees from MIT (Mathematics, and Earth and Planetary Sciences), a PhD from Temple University, and an MD, from the University of Miami. He was a graduate researcher in the Fels Cancer Research Institute, at Temple University, and at the American Health Foundation in Valhalla, New York. His post-doctoral studies were completed at the U.S. National Institutes of Health, and his residency was completed at the George Washington University Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Dr. Berman served as Chief of Anatomic Pathology, Surgical Pathology and Cytopathology at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, where he held joint appointments at the University of Maryland Medical Center and at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. In 1998, he became the Program Director for Pathology Informatics in the Cancer Diagnosis Program at the U.S. National Cancer Institute, where he worked and consulted on Big Data projects. In 2006, Dr. Berman was President of the Association for Pathology Informatics. In 2011 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for Pathology Informatics. He is a co-author on hundreds of scientific publications. Today Dr. Berman is a free-lance author, writing extensively in his three areas of expertise: informatics, computer programming, and cancer biology. A complete list of his publications is available at http://www.julesberman.info/pubs.htm As a Program Director at the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Berman directed a multi-institutional Big Data project and actively organized and participated in high-level conferences and meetings where Big Data efforts were planned. He made a number of contributions to the field, particularly in the areas of identification, de-identification, data exchange protocols, standards development, regulatory/legal issues, and metadata annotation. Aside from his personal experiences, he is a serious scholar of the subject and has studied the works of many other authors who have dealt with the many pitfalls in Big Data creation and analysis. He aims to provide readers with a balanced perspective of Big Data, that represents the views held by leaders in this multi-disciplined field.
