The exchange of DNA in bacteria takes place in three ways:

  1. Conjugation: It is a form of gene transfer and recombination that requires direct cell to cell contact.
  2. Transformation: In this type of transfer, the piece of free DNA is taken up by the bacterial cell and integrated into the recipient's genome.
  3. Transduction: Exchange of DNA takes place by means of bacteriophages.
