Abstract

SUMMARY

Rapidly reannealing DNA, containing repeated base sequences, was shown to be present in the genomes of four bacteriophages by studies of renaturation kinetics. Estimations of the mol. wt. of the DNA by measurement of kinetic complexity gave values of 1.3 × 10 for phage c, 1.6 × 10 for phage I, 9.4 × 10 for phage e and 8.2 × 10 for phage a. Comparison of the phage DNAs by annealing studies confirmed the classification of the phages into two groups.
