What unique molecule does a bacteria cell wall contain?
Name three genetic recombinations among bacteria..
- 1. Conjugation: so called male cell passes DNA to the female cell by way of sex pills (not a sexual reproduction).
- 2. Transformation: occurs when a bacterium takes up a DNA released from its surroundings by a dead bacteria.
- 3. Transduction: viruses carry portions of bacterial DNA from one bacterium to another.
Endospores are thick walled structures that bacteria can produce so it can survive the harshest conditions.
