‘Facts’ about Bacteria extrachromosomal DNA = plasmid - covalently-closed, circular dsDNA  - genes encode ‘accessory’ functions   asexual replication – binary fission - parent cell replicates chromosome - divides producing 2 daughter cells

Growing Bacteria bacterial colony -  millions of bacteria, all  offspring of 1 parent cell  prototroph - ‘wild-type’  -  capable of making its  essential nutrients -  grows on minimal  medium  auxotroph - nutritional mutant - grows only on ‘complete’  medium
