This chapter examines epigenetic inheritance in prokaryotes and its role in evolutionary genetics. It first characterizes epigenetic variations in prokaryotic biology and discusses the mechanisms of epigenetic inheritance in gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. The chapter also discusses feedback loops and the propagation of a nucleoprotein complex.

Keywords:   epigenetic inheritance, prokaryotes, evolutionary genetics, prokaryotic biology, bacteria, feedback loops, nucleoprotein complex
