Graduate students Avery Robinson and Jacob Wilde contributed to a book chapter with Emma Allen-Vercoe that covers many aspects of Fusobacteria biology. Entitled “Fusobacteria: Physiology, Form and Function” it is published in “Colorectal neoplasia and the colorectal microbiome. Dysplasia, probiotics and Fusobacteria”, edited by Martin H. Floch and published by Elsevier. ISBN: 978-0-12-819672-4. In this chapter, the authors sought to distill all of the information as-yet known about fusobacterial physiology, with a particular focus on F. nucleatum, including phylogeny, metabolism, virulence determinants, genomics, plasmids and phages.
