Contributions are divided into six sections: an introductory segment addressing work to be done in the field and the diseases functional anatomy- the diseases chromosome structure, recombination, and cloning- capsule, cell wall, and virulence factors- Pneumococcal disease and animal models- antibiotic resistance- and surveillance and intervention.
