Specialized transduction transfers only those bacterial genes located near the site of prophage insertion.

Three Methods for Mapping Bacterial Genes irB

Three methods of mapping bacterial genes have now been outlined: (1) interrupted conjugation; (2) transformation; and (3) transduction. These methods have important similarities and differences.

Mapping with interrupted conjugation is based on the time required for genes to be transferred from one

^ The phage chromosome integrates into the bacterial chromosome through a single crossover at the homologous att sites.
