and bacteria grow and reproduce; they are operationally plants.

Although bacteria and archaebacteria
replicate asexually, and viruses are cloned asexually by their host cell, rampant horizontal gene transfer (from one cell to another, not from parent to offspring) also shapes their genomes.
Computer analyses of complete genomes suggest that some archaebacteria
employ both eukaryotic and eubacterial mechanisms in translation initiation.
AND EUBACTERIA CONCENTRATIONS IN AQUATIC AREAS OF THREE DIVERSE SALINE ENVIRONMENTS.
The sequences encompass at least seven groups of methane-producing microbes of a type called archaebacteria
Messenger RNA molecules (mRNAs) lacking 5' untranslated leader sequences have been observed in eubacteria, archaebacteria
, and eukaryotic mitochondria (see 1 and references cited therein).
3 in archaebacteria
might be Methanobrevibacter sp.
In order to simplify the task, we decided to use the classification categories provided in the textbook (Miller & Levine, 2001), excluding archaebacteria
