Bacterial DNA is a single, circular molecule and is located in the nucleoid region. Bacteria reproduce asexually, but they have several methods for increasing genetic diversity including vectors, transformation, transduction, and conjugation. Regulation of protein production in prokaryotic cells is done through operons, sets of genes that can be regulated together. They can be repressed using repressor proteins. Anabolic processes are generally repressible; they can be turned off when too much protein is created. Catabolic process are induciblethey can be turned on when needed.
