Polish term or phrase: Genofora (genofor?)
W komórkach wielu gatunków bakterii oprócz GENOFORU znajdują się koliste cząsteczki DNA
o zróżnicowanej wielkości, zwane plazmidami. Plazmidy są zwykle mniejsze od GENOFORU
i niosą dodatkową informację genetyczną, np. dotyczącą oporności danego gatunku bakterii
na antybiotyki. Plazmidy mogą być przekazywane między bakteriami.

As the text above implies, this has something to do with bacteria - I can't figure out if it is a type of bacteria, or if it is the genetic information contained within...

Please help! (and thanks!)
