The example depicted here shows that bacterial genomic loci/gene “at” was transduced into the newly infected cell at the end of the flow chart. Ö. Donor bacterium Phages carrying donor genes a.Refer to the image at the right. Could “b+” be transduced instead of “a+” and what frequency would you expect for “a+” and “b+” to appear in sub- sequent infections? Transduced bacterium Recipient bacterium b. What physical process is responsible for the introduction of the a+gene into the bacterial ge- nome? 9. Explain the difference between Horizontal and Vertical gene transmission. Give examples of each
