The early genetic research on lactic acid bacteria (LAB) was dominated by studies on plasmid-associated phenomena, especially in lactococci. Recent advances in the genomics of LAB have opened novel insights into both the evolutionary aspect of LAB and the genetic basis of their important metabolic functions.
