Bacterial Genetics – Overview, Conjugation & Transduction

Bacterial Genetics is the study that focuses on the transmission of genetic information, both within and between interbreeding lines of bacteria, as well as the expression of genetic information and how genotype (or genetic information) influences phenotype (or the physiology) of the bacterium. There are three methods of DNA transfer in bacteria: Bacterial conjugation, Natural transformation, and Transduction. In this article, we will learn about bacterial genetics, its type, and importance.
