There are no non-coding dna sequences in these bacteria despite the evidence for gene duplication and the use of transposons to accomplish their “adaptive” mutations in their genomes the e-coli genome is simply one closed loop and there is only one replication start and stop unlike most eucaryote genomes that have many separate chromosomes.

Escherichia coli (/ ˌ ɛ ʃ ɪ ˈ r ɪ k i ə ˈ k oʊ l aɪ / also known as e coli) is a gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped, coliform bacterium of the genus escherichia that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms (endotherms) most e coli strains are harmless, but some serotypes can cause serious food poisoning in their.

Escherichia coli competence gene homologs are essential for competitive fitness and the use of dna as a nutrient.
Given the presence of the wbbd gene in e coli b, and the similarity of the corresponding rfb region in b and e coli o7 , it is possible that b acquired the rfb gene cluster by horizontal transfer from o7, with its subsequent inactivation in b by is1 transposition it is also worth noting the role of is elements in inactivating these gene functions in both.
