Abstract

This is an exciting time in the history of bacterial genetics. For many years this science has been the province of the basic researcher. Enormous contributions had been made by bacterial geneticists to our understanding of genetic and molecular biologic processes, but there seemed to be only a few applied uses for the knowledge that had been gained. This picture has been completely changed in the past four or five years, however, and interest in bacterial genetics has suddenly intensified as a result of the development of DNA splicing techniques.
