Question details

n ade+ arg+ cys+ his+ leu+ pro+ bacterial strain is known to be lysogenic for a newly discovered phage, but the site of the prophage is not known. The bacterial map is: arg his leu ade The lysogenic strain is used as a source of the phage, and the phages are added to a bacterial strain of genotype ade- arg- cys- his- leu- pro-. After a short incubation. samples of these bacteria are plated on six different media, with the supplementations indicated in the table below. The table also shows whether or not colonies were observed on the various media Medium Nutrient supplementation in medium Medium ade arg cys his le pro Presence of Colonies + indicates the presence of a nutrient supplement;- indicates supplement not present. N indicates no colonies: C indicates colonies present. an What genetic process is at work here? b. What is the approximate locus of the prophage? I would appreciate it if you could please explain how you had approached the problem. Thanks!
