Triparental mating

Post by misres » Sat Nov 18, 2006 9:19 pm

Hi, does anyone know what are the advantages of triparental mating (also called triparental conjugation) over standard conjugation as a way to transfer DNA into bacteria?

The advantage is that the offspring will get more genetic recombinant.
