1. Bacterial transposition
A short sequence of DNA (known as a transposon ) which can change location on the bacterial genome (the sum total of all of the bacterium's DNA) and contains gene s which code for protein s that enable it to change location. They are useful because they can also contain genes for other things, like antibiotic resistance, and because they can be introduced into a bacterial genome by a researcher.
