7 Lysogeny and Transduction


Lysogeny and transduction describe a type of phage/host interaction and a method of bacterial gene transfer (procaryotic sex), respectively. Although they are often reviewed together, these topics are linked only in that one type of transduction (specialized) has an obligate requirement for a lysogenic interaction. In this chapter we describe the background for understanding both of these processes, and give methods that we have found useful in studying lysogeny and transduction in the marine environment.
