Overview

Generalized transduction is another powerful tool in bacterial genetics. In strain construction, generalized transducing bacteriophages are an indispensable tool. Below is an adaptation of the great protocol in the Sauer lab protocol.

The generalized transducing phages used in the Rao lab are P1vir (E. coli), P22HT (S. typhimurium), and PBS1 (B. subtilis). These are derivatives of temperate bacteriophages which have been mutated to only allow for lytic growth.
