This is one example of isolation of mutants carrying conditionally lethal mutations found in essential genes.
Note that DNA is taken up naked from the environment.
Competence denotes the ability to take up DNA naked from the environment.
Most bacteria are not naturally competent but many can be made artificially so.
Artificially induced competence is very important to gene cloning.
Bacteriophages are viruses that only infect (and can kill) bacteria.
Note multiple resistance genes.
Resistance Transfer Factor (conjugation genes)
Note in particular that DNA is cut at palindromic regions.
