Comparative Microbial Genomics

Duncan, Margaret J.

A brief overview of microbial genome sequencing is followed by an update on new directions in the field. Interesting facets of individual oral bacterial genomes are described, together with a discussion of how genome information is being exploited to understand gene expression and regulation. The field of comparative genomics is reviewed and illustrated with examples of the mechanisms that drive the evolution of bacteria and their virulence factors.

Keywords: genomics, oral bacteria
