ENETIC recombination in bacteria was first successfully studied in strain G K-12 of Esclzericlzia coli (TATUM and LEDERBERG 1947; LEDERBERG 1951). Since the nutritional mutants used in the crosses were derived directly from this strain under clonal propagation, their conipatibility implied a homothallic or self-compatible sexual system (cf. WHITEHOUSE 1949). The inference that crossing was genetically unrestricted was supported by the absence of marked hereditary mating preferences among the… CONTINUE READING
