Abstract

This article deals with some aspects of the structure of the nucleoid in Escherichia coli. It is based on a contribution to the symposium on ‘Relations between Structure and Function in the Prokaryotic Cell’ at the Annual Meeting of the Society for General Microbiology in April 1978, but was not published in the Symposium Volume.
