About this book

Often thought to lack significant internal organization by comparison with eukaryotic cells, prokaryotes have in fact been shown to possess distinct intracellular compartments. Moreover, they also have cytoskeletal filaments reminiscent of those in higher organisms. Recent work has significantly extended our understanding of these features of prokaryotic cells and their roles in control of cell division, morphogenesis, and other processes.

The book covers all aspects of prokaryotic cell biology, including the bacterial cytoskeleton, membrane organization, chromosome dynamics, nucleic acid processing and dynamics, as well as various methods.
