why about bacteria are most often utilized to study biological process???
They are very easy and fast to grow.
BECAUSE... that's why...
You don't need to apply for ethics approval to use these as research subjects
And, for several aspects, what happens in bacteria is also happening in higher organisms
I heard a saying somethings like this but do not remember from whom 'what happens in E.coli is also happening in an Elephant'
slavery is a problem that bacterias can't fight against...
They're very kind by doing all stuff for us
but i'm wondering is someone have ever do an interview with a bacteria for knowing their point of view on it...
If u can multiply once in 20 min, grow only with one carbon source, eat genes and express them right away etc I am ready to order for a very big petri dish..
