Continuous of microbiology review questions

My previous order has just completed by writer ID 7243. I still have 8 more of the microbiology review questions that need to get done ASAP. If writer 7243 is being assigned for this assignment, I am sure he/she should know what to do. If not, here is the instruction:

Please answer the 8 questions in a short essay answers. The answers must be the answers to the questions. 2 to 3 sentences of answer for each question is acceptable but PLEASE DO NOT answer the whole page for each question. Here is the link that you can refer to my lecture notes and you can also do research online to find out the answer. As long as you are answering the questions. Thanks for your help!


Lateral Transfer

1. Why is lateral transfer of DNA a more potent way than mutation for generating diversity or versatility among a population of microorganisms? Where might lateral transfer occur in nature?

2. Give some examples of traits that are often swapped among microorganisms? What are some bacteria that have gained pathogenicity as a result of lateral gene transfer?

3. How is genetic recombination useful for lateral transfer?

4. What is transformation? What gets transformed? How is the DNA made available for transformation?

5. Describe Griffith s experiments that first demonstrated genetic transformation.

6. How is conjugation different than transformation? How can genes on the donor chromosome get transferred to the recipient cell?

7. Describe transduction. What are some bacterial pathogens that rely on transduction for their pathogenicity?

8. How can transposons generate diversity among a population of bacteria?
