This chapter presents an overview of anabolism starting with the fixation of carbon dioxide. It then focuses on the synthesis of carbohydrates; the assimilation of phosphorus, sulfur, and nitrogen; and then the synthesis of amino acids, purines and pyrimidines, and lipids. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the synthesis of peptidoglycan and bacterial cell walls.
