Cytoplasm organization in bacteria

By Uncategorized
Our review paper “An inventory of the bacterial macromolecular components and their spatial organization” is now published online in FEMS Microbiology Reviews (March 2011, Volume 35, Issue 2, pages 233–414)

The paper reviews qualitative and quantitative data on the intracellular organization of bacteria and provide a detailed inventory of macromolecular structures. A particular focus is made on the bacterial Z-ring and the crowding due to the ribosomes.

The 3D scenes used for making the illustrations are downloadable in the Download section of the website.
