The papers assembled in this collection comprise a majority of the oral presentations as well as several poster presentations given at the 22nd Annual Symposium arranged by the Bastern Pennsylvania Branch of the American Society for MicrobioloS)'. The symposium would not be possible without the generous support of the many sponsors (see sponsor list) or without the concerted effort of a11 the Committee members. This Symposium series has evolved into an annual Bastern Pennsylvania Branch ASM event that attracts participants from a wide geographie area.

Therefore, the manuscript that manuscripts based on comments fo11ows should be viewed as a group effort of both the participants and presenters.
