The increasing recognition that the biochemical study of the bacterial cell may eventually contribute to the solution of many problems in the realms of immunity, of epidemiology and of life itself is exemplified in this summary of recent work. Fundamental investigations into energy relations, fermentation activities, respiration, carbohydrate and protein breakdown, nitrogen fixation, nitrification and similar topics are dealt with in a comprehensive and thorough fashion. There is a brief appendix with formulas of mediums, a full bibliography and a good index.
