3. DNA integration
What is transduction?
Transfer of DNA using a virus (bacteriophage)
Recombination follows which events of DNA exchange?
Which RNA virus shows legitimate recombination?
What is a lytic infection?
Terminal, destructive, common type of infection where infection takes place and more virus is produced, cell undergoes lysis and virus spreads.
