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
