Bacterial genetics entails the study of bacterial genome and various modifications and interference to the natural bacterial genetic make-up. Bacteria have proved to be an essential part of modern genetics and have allowed researchers to understand various mechanisms that occur in human genetics, using bacteria as a model. An example of which would be an insight into how gene transcription is controlled (how genes are turned on and off/ expressed in varying levels) using the Lac Operon as a model.
