Chairman’s Introduction: Replication, Incompatibility, and Partition

  • Kurt Nordström


The life cycle of plasmids comprises 2 different events, increase in number (replication) and distribution of the plasmid copies to the daughter cells (partition). Both these events are controlled by plasmid-borne genetic information. They were discussed in 16 talks, one informal workshop (on partition) and 37 posters.
