The genetic material of bacteria and plasmids is DNA. Bacterial viruses (bacteriophages or phages) have DNA or RNA as genetic material. The two essential functions of genetic material are replication and expression. Genetic material must replicate accurately so that progeny inherit all of the specific genetic determinants (the genotype) of the parental organism.

The revision of this classic textbook by David Freifelder has been rewritten and updated to include the numerous and recent advances in microbial genetics. The basic format, organization and style of the first edition has been retained/5(3). This book has been a good tool to teach, because has all the main points that are need to know the bases of Microbial genetics. Other books are excellents but this book has the minimun to know and understand other books. Read more. 4 people found /5(2).

  Microbial Genetics focuses on the current state of knowledge on the genetics of bacteria, bacteriophages, and recombinant DNA technology and its applications in a way understandable to the students, teachers, and scientists. The book expounds on the specialized aspects of microbial genetics and technologies, keeping in mind the syllabi of different Indian /5(4). Finally, we shouldn’t leave the topic of microbial genetics without at least exploring the role of transposable elements or “jumping genes.” While these can play a very big role in the activation and inactivation of bacterial genes, the best explanation derives from the work of Barbara McClintock in corn, who won the Nobel Prize for her. Conjugation. Conjugation is the process by which a donor bacterium transfers a copy of a plasmid to a recipient bacterium, through a process requires cell-to-cell contact. The donor cell (F+) has a conjugative plasmid, an extrachromosomal piece of dsDNA that codes for the proteins necessary to make a threadlike filament known as a pilus is used to bind to the . Ranajit Chakraborty, Bruce Budowle, in Microbial Forensics (Second Edition), Background of Some Major Pathogens. Microbial genetics has traditionally been a field of basic science research as microorganisms offer several features that facilitate the study of evolutionary processes. Short generation time, haploid genome, ease of culturing, and their abundance .

Extrachromosomal DNA (abbreviated ecDNA) is any DNA that is found off the chromosomes, either inside or outside the nucleus of a DNA in an individual genome is found in chromosomes contained in the nucleus. Multiple forms of extrachromosomal DNA exist and serve important biological functions, e.g. they can play a role in disease, such as ecDNA in cancer.
