Bacterial chromosomes, mostly of circular form, have an unique primary structure that are stably maintained. We initiated a systematic study to induce changes of the structure of the Bacillus subtilis chromosome. There are two main goals: (i) to obtain general concepts for possible plasticity of the bacterial genome and (ii) to apply the proposed genome technology to bacteria.
