Control of Chromosome Replication in Bacteria
The exciting progress that has recently been made in unravelling the replication control mechanisms that determine the copy numbers of several plasmids has been reviewed and updated by several contributors to this volume. In contrast, the control of chromosome replication in bacteria remains largely a closed book.
