Based on a meeting held at the University of Surrey in September 1989, this book details progress in research since the first reports of cloning of mycobacterial genes were published some five years ago. Mycobacteriologists, bacterial geneticists, and those with an interest in microbial pathogenesis will find much of value in this volume.
