Summary
"This volume presents the first comprehensive review of bacterial quorum sensing, the signaling processes involved in control of multicellular activities of microbes. It reflects the explosion of knowledge in this area, and the realization that work being done in each of the signaling systems being studied may have important implications for other organisms not closely related by phylogeny or ecological niche."--Jacket
