Abstract

A SURVEY of the literature suggests that most bacteria are lysogenic for one or more phages. This communication reports failure to detect or establish lysogeny among strains of Pasteurella pestis. The object of the work was to obtain a temperate phage suitable for genetic study by means of transduction1 of factors determining virulence in this organism2… (More)
