Bacteria contain only short, simple genes in their genomes.

The functions of nearly all the genes identified in a well-studied bacteria such as E. coli have been determined.

There is no correlation between genome size and metabolic capability of the organism.

Some bacteria contain genes that appear to have originated from humans, as well as a large proportion of genes from other bacterial species.
