DNA repair and the evolution of transformation IV . DNA damage increases transformation

  title={DNA repair and the evolution of transformation IV . DNA damage increases transformation},
  author={Richard and E. Michod and Martin and Filip Wojciechowski},
Natural genetic transformation in the bacterium Bacillus subtifis provides a model system to explore the evolutionary function of sexual recombination. In the present work, we study the response of transformation to UV irradiation using donor DNAs that differ in sequence homology to the recipient’s chromosome and in the mechanism of transformation. The four donor DNAs used include homologouschromosomal-DNA, two plasmids containing a fragment of B. suhtilis trp + operon DNA and a plasmid with no… CONTINUE READING
