Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The genetic transfer system of Haloferax volcanii is the first known archaebacterial mating system. This work describes experiments that demonstrate the transfer of selectable shuttle vectors between cells of H. volcanii and from cells of H. volcanii to cells of H. mediterranei.
