I think one of the things to be discussed by microbiologist is the
"mechanism-directed-evolution," . . . in that Lynn Margulis, the best
known evolutionary microbiologist, thinks the mechanism is "aquiring
genomes via symbiogenesis" (e.g., mitochondris and chloroplasts were
once (still are?) bacteria).
So, this *would* be applicable to microbiology. (I am a former MT
(ASCP) too and I know the above is not taught in my old Med. Tech.
