Where bacteria get their genes

...spread exchange of genes does not blur the line of descent because the acquired genes get lost from the genome at a later point or, if they do persist, the bacteria then transmit them to their offspring. Being able to classify bacteria is crucial for medicine, Ochman said. "If you go to the doctor with stre...
