Basic Molecular Microbiology of Bacteria



Bacteria possess a compact genome architecture, which is distinct from eukaryotes. It shows a strong correlation between genome size and the number of functional genes, and the genes are structured in operons reflecting polycistronic transcripts. Among different species of bacteria, there is some variation in genome size which, however, is smaller than that of many eukaryotes.
