This chapter focuses on the choice of a model organism, in this case the bacterium Escherichia coli, in the development of molecular genetics. It shows that this choice was made inconspicuously just three years after Beadle and Tatum published their 1941 paper on the first biochemical mutants of Neurospora.

Keywords:   Escherichia coli, bacterium, model organisms, model systems, molecular genetics
