    Bacteriophage are viruses of bacteria and arguably are the most numerous "organisms" on history of phage study is captured, in part, in the books published on the topic. This is a list of over monographs on or related to phages.   Transduction. Transduction involves the transfer of a DNA fragment from one bacterium to another by a bacteriophage. There are two forms of transduction: generalized transduction and specialized transduction. During the replication of lytic bacteriophages and temperate bacteriophages, occasionally the phage capsid accidently assembles around a small fragment of bacterial DNA.

    This book describes the bacteriophage, which is considered as a model virus in comparison with typical microorganisms and cellular organelles. It also introduces the reader to the kinetics of phage reproduction; the intracellular multiplication of bacterial viruses; and the process of lysogeny in bacteria. Molecular Biology of Bacteriophage T4 highlights the value of this biological system as a research and teaching tool. The book is a sequel to the edition and is organized into six major sections: DNA metabolism, regulation of gene expression, phage morphogenesis, structure and function of selected proteins, host-phage interactions, and experiments in T4 molecular genetics.

    There are many similarities between bacteriophages and animal cell viruses. Thus, bacteriophage can be viewed as model systems for animal cell viruses. In addition a knowledge of the life cycle of bacteriophage is necessary to understand one of the mechanisms by which bacterial genes can be transferred from one bacterium to another.

About this Textbook Genetic investigations and manipulations of bacteria and bacteriophage have made vital contributions to our basic understanding of living cells and to the development of molecular biology and : Springer-Verlag New York.

Bacterial and Bacteriophage Genetics provides students with a comprehensive introduction to this rapidly advancing subject. This fourth edition has been extensively revised and reorganized to reflect advances in the s: 2.

This book is intended for the student who is taking a first course in bacterial and bacteriophage genetics, rather than as a reference tool for the specialist. It presumes a knowledge of basic biology as weIl as familiarity with general genetics.

The changes between the third and fourth editions are evolutionary in nature, both literally and figuratively. New in this edition are some boxed questions for students to read and think about before continuing on to the next section. The Thinking Ahead boxes are intended to prod the students to make predictions based on their existing knowledge before reading the new material.5/5(1).

All of the major topics in modern bacterial and bacteriophage genetics are presented, among them mutations and mutagenesis, genetics of T4 bacteriophage and other intemperate and temperate phages, transduction, transformation, conjugation and plasmids, recombination and repair, probability laws for prokaryote cultures, as well as applied bacterial genetics.

Introduction This book is intended for the student who is taking a first course in bacterial and bacteriophage genetics, rather than as a reference tool for the specialist. It presumes a knowledge of basic biology as weIl as familiarity with general genetics.

For instructors who have used the previous edition of this book, there is only one major rearrangement of material. Previously, each new edition had a new set of genetic maps for the major bacteria and bacteriophages. This practice has now fallen vic­ tim to the success of the genetics.

This volume is a survey of the genetics of bacteria and their viruses, and it provides students with a comprehensive introduction to this rapidly changing subject. The book is written for upper level undergraduates and beginning graduate students, particularly those who have had an introductory genetics course.

Edward A. Birge. This edition offers a greater emphasis on molecular biology and genetics than was present in either of. During infection, a phage attaches to a bacterium and injects its genetic material into the bacterial cytoplasm (Figure ).The phage genetic information then takes over the machinery of the bacterial cell by turning off the synthesis of bacterial components and redirecting the bacterial synthetic material to make more phage components (Figure ).

Bacteriophage Genetics Bacteriophages, the viruses that parasitize and kill bacteria, can be used in several different types of genetic analysis. First, two distinct phage genotypes can be crossed to measure recombination and hence map the viral genome.

In accordance with its predecessor, the completely revised and expanded Second Edition of Modern Microbial Genetics focuses on how bacteria and bacteriophage arrange and rearrange their genetic material through mutation, evolution, and genetic exchange to.The genetic material of bacteria and plasmids is DNA.

Bacterial viruses (bacteriophages or phages) have DNA or RNA as genetic material. The two essential functions of genetic material are replication and expression. Genetic material must replicate accurately so that progeny inherit all of the specific genetic determinants (the genotype) of the parental organism.
