Transduction Transduction is a process of gene transfer by bacteriophage vectors. The altered bacteriophage can act as a vector for gene transfer to new host. Recombination Following gene transfer, there are several possible outcomes for DNA. If the transferred gene is on a replicon, F’ for example, it is replicated independent of its host chromosome. But if the transferred gene lacks a replicon, it is either destroyed or integrated into the host chromosome by homologous recombination. To be integrated as an episome, it requires complete or near identity to the host gene. Homologous recombination is common is prokaryotes but very rare in eukaryotes. Smith and Arber are credited with discovered the Restriction of Modification system of DNA. Smith and Arber discovered the restriction of endonucleases, which cleave DNA at specific sequences. Every bacterium consists of many strains. The DNA of a phage previously grown in E. coli C was modified to resemble C’s DNA. When the C modified phage DNA is

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
