This e-book has arisen from the second one ecu assembly on Bacterial Genetics and Ecology (Bageco-2) held on the college of Wales, university of Cardiff which we organised on 11-12 April 1989. The assembly was once attended via a few 60 individuals from 8 ecu nations and used to be made attainable by way of partial monetary help from the fee of the ecu groups (CEC) and Imperial Chem­ ical Industries (UK) Ltd. The assembly used to be organised to debate sleek advancements within the genetics of micro organism in aquatic and terrestrial habitats. It on from, and complemented, the 1st assembly of this sequence organised by means of Jean-Pierre Gratia in Brussels in the course of April 1987 which centred extra on clinical and epidemiological matters. ! the subsequent assembly can be organised by way of Michel J. Gauthier in 1991 at great, France. in case you have been fired with enthusiasm for ecological bacterial genetics after having learn this booklet, and wish to wait the following assembly yet didn't pay attention concerning the one in Cardiff, you'll want to write to Dr Gauthier to be wear the deal with checklist. much is referred to now approximately bacterial genetics on the physiological, biochemical and molecular point, and bacterial ecology has constructed quickly during the last two decades. even though, till very lately, few researchers have crossed the divide and associated those specialisms.
