Bacterial genomics is a scientific discipline that concerns the genome, encompassing the entire hereditary information, of bacteria. Bacterial genomes are generally smaller and less variant in size between species when compared with genomes of animals and single cell eukaryotes. Bacterial genomics can, for example, be used to study bacterial evolution or outbreaks of bacterial infections. bacteria show a strong correlation between genome size and number of functional genes in a genome.
