The publication of the third edition of "Cowan and Steel," almost 20 years after the last, is like the return of a very dear, old friend. The beauty is that despite everything that has happened, the friend is at heart just the same-the mission "to help those who have isolated a bacterium (from a "medical" source) and want to identify it". The book begins with five general chapters on classification and nomenclature; culture media (with Frau Hesse still in her rightful place); isolation… 
Assessing abattoir hygiene with a marker organism
It was concluded that the marker may be of value in assessing hygiene control, improving present practices, and training abattoir staff.
Zoonotic Bacterial Pathogens Isolated from Raw Milk with Special Reference to Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus in Dakahlia Governorate, Egypt
Milk is one of the greatest blessings that are given to Humans by Nature. Milk is considered a complete and nutritious food; not only for the new-born mammal and for the human beings, but it is
Identification of anaerobic and concomitant aerobic bacterial etiologies in caprine footrot
Even if cultural isolation of the organisms is confirmative of the disease, absence of ISSN: 2319-7706 Volume 3 Number 4 (2014) pp. 197-206 means that the identification of these organisms by isolation very tedious and time consuming.
Isolation, identification, and antibiogram studies of Salmonella species and Escherichia coli from boiler meat in some selected areas of Bangladesh.
The study revealed the presence of multidrug resistant Salmonella and E. coli in broiler meat sold in live bird market of different upazilla markets of Mymensingh, Gazipur, and Sherpur districts during the period of January 2015 to May 2015.
Isolation and molecular characterization of Listeria monocytogenes from mutton and paneer.
The occurrence and molecular characterization of Listeria monocytogenes from mutton and paneer sold at retail outlets of Kashmir and the confirmation of the organism was done on the basis of biochemical tests and by Christie, Atkins and Munch Petersen (CAMP) test.
Assessment of Listeria Monocytogenes in Unpasteurized Milk Obtained from Cattle in Northern Nigeria
Listeria monocytogenes is a gram-positive, rod shaped bacterium which grows at 24°C. However, it grows optimally at 37°C. It is an agent of listeriosis, a serious disease caused by the consumption of
Detection of Listeria monocytogenes in Several Types of Frozen Meat in Baghdad city
The PCR kit used for the detection of L monocytogenes appears to give accurate results in the diagnoses of this bacterium in meat products and in comparison with the other routine diagnosis methods in the laboratory, which included culturing and doing biochemical tests which last for approximately 7 days, the RT-PCR technique was able to confirm the findings within 48 hours.
Isolation, Biochemical and Molecular Identification, and In-Vitro Antimicrobial Resistance Patterns of Bacteria Isolated from Bubaline Subclinical Mastitis in South India
High resistance of the associated bacteria to the β-lactam class of antibiotics, and a possible major role of coagulase-negative staphylococci in causing the disease in India are revealed.
Proposed minimal standards for the description of genera, species and subspecies of the Pasteurellaceae.
The main criterion for the classification of a novel species is that it forms a monophyletic group based on 16S rRNA gene sequence-based phylogenetic analysis, however, some groups might also include closely related species.
