Abstract

The chromosomal location of a host gene, (), which is essential for the morphogenesis of several bacteriophages in , was determined by two- and three-factor transductional crosses using phage P1. Cotransduction frequencies between and other markers were: , 90%; , 77%; , 73%; , 24%. The sequence of markers in the corresponding segment ( to ; 91·5 to 93·5 min) of the linkage map was shown to be ()–.
