Abstract

Molecular genetics of thermophilic lactic acid bacteria has advanced in several directions: exploitation of the milk proteins and sugars; primary and secondary metabolism; stress response; and molecular ecology of bacteria and their phages. These have singularly contributed to open new avenues of scientific interest in the field: comparative phage genomics; horizontal gene transfer events in bacterial or phage populations; and genetics of external polysaccharide production.
