How do bacterial genomes change?

  • The change in genome is usually brought about by mutation and by transfer of genes between organisms.
  • Bacteria are generally haploid and genes transferred in bacterial cells don’t form zygote but partially diploid are produced called merozygotes.
  • The original genome of the recipient is named as endogenote and a portion of DNA introduced from a donor cell in to the recipient cell is called exogenote.
  • Variation in sequence or grouping of genetic nucleotides is called recombination and this mechanism is known as recombination mechanisms.
