Concept #1: Transduction

Concept #2: Transduction

Practice: Transduction is a form of horizontal gene transfer which requires a carrier for the genetic information being transferred. What is this carrier and what is it made of?

Concept #3: Transduction

Practice: Generalized transduction includes all of the following steps except which of these answers?

Concept #4: Transduction

Practice: Which of the following processes results in a transducing particle?

Practice: A prophage is:

Practice: Which of these answers is a major difference between generalized and specialized transduction?

Practice: In both generalized and specialized transduction only one cell survives this process. Which cell does not survive the process of transduction and why?

Practice: How are the processes of bacterial transformation and bacterial transduction similar?
