Proceedings of a symposium held in Mallorca, Spain in April 1992. The goal of the meeting was to assess the present state of knowledge on the structure and physiology of the bacterium murien sacculus, and develop new hypotheses and strategies to promote further development of the field. The contributions reflect broadly different approaches. Papers discuss structure and chemistry, biosynthesis and maturation, regulation and control of cell wall hydrolases, penicillin interactive proteins, morphogenesis and septum formation, and cell growth.
