"This volume considers the transport of molecules, large and small, across the membranes of prokaryotic and eukaryotic microbial cells. A diverse range of related phenomena are covered, but the unifying themes are the signal peptides that target proteins to particular destinations, and the role of chaperonins."--Jacket
"Fifty-eighth symposium of the Society for General Microbiology held at the University of Leeds, September 1999."
