    All microorganisms have [... definite] genetic information.

    I don't have a clue how I could translate that. My brain seems to be asleep again.
    Anybody any idea?
    Thanks in advance.

    I am no biologist, but would specific fit her?

    There are lots of references for "specific genetic materials" but I am not sure if it fits your context. Perhaps you could look at a few English documents that contain the phrase and see if they convey the same meaning for which you are looking.

    I agree with Resistor: you could write "very specific genetic information". That would be a nearly literal translation.

    If you want to emphasize the uniqueness of each organism's DNA, you could write:
    Each microorganism has its own unique genetic information.

    Thank you very much. 'Specific' didn't occur to me (it was on the tip of my tongue...). Fits in perfectly!
