3 ways bacteria can acquire new DNA 1.Transformation : uptake of free DNA 2.Transduction : bacteriophages carry DNA between cells 3.Conjugation : “bacterial sex”; transfer of chromosomal DNA between bacteria

Phage life cycle 1.Phage injects DNA genome into bacterium 2.Bacterial DNA is chopped up. viral DNA are made by bacterial enzymes; they self-assemble to make new virus particles.

Transduction: viral proteins accidentally assemble with a bacterial DNA fragment instead of the viral genome. Phage with bacterial DNA is released from the cell. bacterial DNA fragments

This phage injects the DNA fragment into ano- ther bacterium. The fragment recombines with the bacterial chromo- some; breaking/rejoining at equivalent positions. Injected A+ form of gene replaces original A- form. recombinant cell
