This chapter begins with a discussion of studies on temperate bacteriophages. It then describes the discovery of a new and surprising form of genetic recombination called transduction, which led to Salmonella typhimurium becoming a model for bacterial genetics, and the discovery of phage lambda.

Keywords:   temperate bacteriophages, model organisms, model systems, Salmonella typhimurium, bacterial genetics, phage lambda
