Back Matter Pages About this book Introduction The bacterial cell wall represents a very complex structure disconnecting the interior of single-cell organisms from the environment, thus protecting, but also enabling, them to interact with the surrounding milieu and to exchange both substances and information.
Knowledge of the biochemistry of the cell wall components and the genetic background helps to understand their significance with regard to microbiology and immunology of bacteria. This book represents the second edition of a publication which was presented nearly 20 years ago in the German language Die bakterielle Zellwand.
Since that time our knowledge in this field has been significantly enlarged. Therefore, the manuscript had to be completely revised and updated.
