Abstract

SUMMARY: A process of genetic transfer, which could be demonstrated with culture filtrates of a strain of is described. The evidence indicates that genetic material was transferred in association with a large particle and that the process was similar to Salmonella transduction except that in the present case it occurred spontaneously between mutants of a single strain.
