Microbial Genomics The Entire genetic complement of DNA in a cell = genome Genomes of bacteria are usually made up of chromosome(s) and plasmids One circular chromosome – Can be linear Many bacteria contain plasmids Bacterial genome = 0.6–9.4 x 10 6 bp About 1000 bases in a typical bacterial gene Human genome = 4 x 10 9 bp 1000x as large as E. coli But 6x genes: 25,000 (us) vs. 4,000 ( E. coli ) Bacterial genomes have less non-coding sequences – more compact
