The genetic material of bacteria and plasmids is DNA. The two essential functions of genetic material are replication and expression. Structure of DNA The DNA molecule is composed of two chains of nucleotides wound around each other in the form of “double helix”. Double-stranded DNA is helical, and the two strands in the helix are antiparallel. Start studying The Genetics of Bacteria and their Viruses.

Though heredity had been observed for millennia, Gregor Mendel, a scientist and Augustinian friar working in the 19th century, was the first to study genetics scientifically. Mendel studied "trait inheritance", patterns in the way traits are handed down from parents to offspring.
Bacteria became important model organisms in genetic analysis, and many discoveries of general interest in genetics arose from their study. Bacterial genetics is the centre of cloning technology. Viral genetics is another key part of microbial genetics. The genetics of viruses that attack bacteria were the first to be elucidated. Since then. In the early 's, interest in the bacteria and in viruses as models for genetic systems arose through the workwithbacteriophages by Delbrick and collaborators (reviewed in refer-ence 52), and with bacteria by manyinvestiga-tors, including Demerec (57, 80, 81).

While other texts in this area deal almost solely with the "workhorse strain" Escherischia coli, Genetics of Bacterial Diversity is the first to deal with genetics and molecular biology of the wide range of other bacteria, which carry out a whole spectrum of important scientific, medical, agricultural, and biotechnological activities.
Taking genetic diversity as its theme it illustrates a. Genetics of Bacterial Diversity focuses on the rapidly developing field of ""non-K"" bacterial genetics that is largely outside the scope of other texts.
The book begins with an introductory chapter that outlines the phylogenetic relationships of bacteria and the range of metabolic, behavioral, and developmental phenomena displayed by them. It is based on the large body of work which has exploited the gram-negative organism Escherichia coli over the years.
In addition, we introduce the gram-positive Bacillus subtilis which has unique features as a genetic system. Those wishing to study other bacteria will find a. 62 M.

Demerec began to study of bacteria and bacteriophages, and in encouraged Max Delbrück to initiate the first advanced course at the Laboratory—the Phage Course.
Delbrück and collaborators including Salvador Luria introduced other researchers to these new genetic Phage Course played a key role in the development of molecular. Before beginning the formal study of the genetics of bacteria and their viruses, it is important to have a clear understanding of the fundamentals of microbial cell structure and of basic viral processes.
This chapter briefly reviews cell anatomy as well as genetic terminology and processes with respect to bacteria, yeast, and : Edward A. Birge. This success can be traced back to the first experiments on the molecular genetics of DNA in the genetic transformation of bacteria, as well as to the first isolation of metabolic mutants in fungi.

In the s, Demerec's research detected the mutagenic action upon bacteria of many salts, organic chemicals, and carcinogens. The fine structure of the gene and the linkage relations of the genes in Salmonella typhimurium was another classic study carried forward largely with the collaboration of his son-in-law Philip Hartman and his daughter.
GENETIC transduction has been demonstrated in a limited number of bacterial species, such as Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Shigella and Pseudomonas aeruginosa 1– by: 8.
that genetic methods in combination with the use of ionizing radiation (in particular, X-rays) played the greatest role in die first stage in the development of techniques for the selection of micro-organisms.

Bacterial genetics are subtly different from eukaryotic genetics, however bacteria still serve as a good model for animal genetic studies. One of the major distinctions between bacterial and eukaryotic genetics stems from the bacteria's lack of membrane-bound organelles (this is true of all prokaryotes.
