Connecting Concepts Across Chapters y

Bacteria and viruses have been used extensively in the study of genetics: their rapid reproduction, large numbers of progeny, small haploid genomes, and medical importance make them ideal organisms for many types of genetic investigations.

This chapter examined some of the techniques used to study and map bacterial and viral genomes. Some of these methods are an extension of the principles of recombination and gene mapping explored in Chapter 7.
