Of 21Rhizobium meliloti temperate phages, 12 transduced streptomycin resistance (str-r) with a frequency of 10−5 to 10−7. Lysine dependence was transduced with frequency of 10−7. Five transducing phages were used in experiments on the transfer of effectiveness from effective donor strain to 11 ineffective strains. However, plant tests did not reveal changes in recipient effectiveness.
