Report on a Workshop: Plasmids in Unusual Systems

  • Simon Silver

The first problem for this workshop was to define “unusual systems” as more than a catch-all for topics not covered elsewhere at the meeting. This is related to the “specialized functions” sessions held later in the week, for functions not covered in special single topic sessions. Unusual systems are (i) plasmids in organisms other than E. coli and especially those that have not gained sufficient research activity to stand alone at the meeting. Thus, some “unusual systems” of 1984 will enjoy a different status in future Plasmid Symposia. (ii) Unusual systems also mean plasmid functions, and especially metabolic capacities, governed by plasmids that have not yet seen sufficient study to stand in sections by themselves.
