Concept #1: Transduction

Practice: True or False: Transduction uses viruses to transfer foreign DNA into bacteria

Practice: Specialized transduction differs from generalized transduction because specialized transduction is defined by what?

Practice: A cotransduction experiment was performed with two bacteria strains. The first train has the genotype l+ g m+ while the second strain has the genotype of l g+ m. The researchers found that 46 colonies had cotransduced m+ with l+, while only 25 colonies had cotransduced g with l+. Using this information determine which of the following gene pairs are closest together.
