Conjugation and Genetic Mapping

Conjugation and Genetic Mapping

We know that bacteria share traits through conjugation. Can the frequency of specific exchanges help us map these traits? Analysis of the data from a series of MicroGCK conjugation simulations provides a method for genetic mapping. * examine conjugant populations from two strains of bacteria incubated for different periods of time as a strategy for mapping traits...
