Genetics is the science of heredity and genetic information in a cell. Microbial genetics is the study of genome or the genetic material of microorganisms. Most of the bacteria and viruses have RNA as the genetic material. Retroviruses are the viruses with DNA as genetic material and caused AIDS in humans. Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
