This quantity includes the court cases of the FEBS Sym posium at the Biochemistry of Membrane delivery, which used to be held on the Swiss Institute of expertise, Zlirich, July 18-23, 1976. Of the audio system invited or iginally, merely 5 couldn't attend the assembly, and of the lectures given, all yet one of many texts are released right here. therefore, this quantity supplies a loyal ac count number of ways the assembly used to be initially conceived and really happened. This Symposium on Biochemistry of Membrane delivery used to be the 1st Symposium subsidized via the FEBS open air the annual FEBS-Meetings, after the particular assembly on commercial Biochemistry, which happened in Dublin in 1973, and it displays the curiosity and the fashion for gatherings of smaller measurement than the legit FEBS conferences. the subject of the Symposium was once a simple selection, not just simply because membrane delivery is becom ing an increasing number of very important to biochemistry each year, but in addition as a result long-standing curiosity of Swiss technological know-how within the box. within the collection of the themes and of the audio system, efforts have been made to accomplish as balanced a assurance of the realm as attainable. even if, due to the fact a few points of membrane biochemistry have been handled broadly on the parallel tenth Inter nationwide Congress of Biochemistry in Hamburg, GFR, cer tain subject matters got much less emphasis than others. The Symposium was once attended through approximately four hundred individuals (we anticipated 200-250); between them forty eight have been invited audio system, and a few 2 hundred contributed posters.
