Reproduction in Bacteria - Vegetative, Asexual and Sexual Methods Bacteria are the simplest, the smallest, and the most successful microorganisms. They . Methods of Reproduction: Asexual & Sexual Asexual Reproduction. Asexual reproduction produces offspring that are genetically identical to the parent because the offspring are all clones of the original parent. This type of reproduction occurs in prokaryotic microorganisms (bacteria) and in some eukaryotic single-celled and multi-celled organisms. We hope to gain an understanding of how this novel form of cell reproduction developed over time and how it benefits these intestinal symbionts.

Sexual reproduction is a kind of life cycle where generations alternate between cells with a single set of chromosomes haploid and cells with a double set of chromosomes diploid. Diploid cells divide into haploid cells in a process called meiosis. Two haploid cells combine into one diploid cell in a process called fertilisation. Between fertilisation and meiosis there can methods of sexual reproduction of bacteria
a large number of cell divisions without change of the number of chromosomes. Fertilization creates a single-celled zygote which includes genetic material from both gametes.
