Which method of transferring DNA gets the most DNA across?
CONJUGATION
what is the ratio of F plasmids that cross the pillus into the new cell?
10 x -6....aka, one in a million.
what is the first step of CONjuGATION involving an Hfr cell?
The F plamid integrates into chromosome by recombination
what does HfR stand for?
High frequency of Recombination
How is an Hfr cell created?
when an F+ cell integrates its F plamid into its chromosome. Hfr cells donate a partial copy of their DNA and a portion of the F plasmid to a recipient, which is rendered a recombinant cell but remains F-.
