Transformation of Thermus Species by Natural Competence
Authors:  Alba Blesa and José Berenguer, date: 11/20/2016, view: 3698, Q&A: 0
Many Thermus species harbour genomes scourged with horizontally transferred signatures. Thermus thermophilus (Tth) has been characterized as naturally competent. The transformation protocol described here is based on the ...
Cell-to-cell DNA Transfer among Thermus Species
Authors:  Alba Blesa and José Berenguer, date: 11/20/2016, view: 3790, Q&A: 0
The ability to transfer DNA via direct cell-to-cell contact-dependent process similar to conjugation has been described in Thermus thermophilus (Tth). Here, we detail the mating experiment protocol involving the lateral transfer of ...
