This timely volume reviews the molecular mechanisms and regulation aspects of conjugation in a variety of bacterial systems. An international group of contributors examine the movement of plasmids and conjugative transposons across species and kingdom barriers, and discuss the significance of the transfer phenomenon from clinical, environmental, and industrial perspectives.
