Concept #1: Horizontal Gene Transfer

Practice: Which of the following is not a type of horizontal gene transfer?

Concept #2: Horizontal Gene Transfer

Practice: All of the following are possible outcomes of horizontally transferred DNA, except which of these answers?

Practice: When DNA is transferred between bacterial cells, there are three possible fates of the transferred DNA. Which fate ensures that the transferred DNA will be retained inside of the bacterial cell the longest?

Concept #3: Horizontal Gene Transfer

Practice: Homologous recombination:
