In this easy exercise, students observe a natural method of gene transfer. The harmless bacterial virus T4 transmits an ampicillin-resistance gene to E. coli. Students also observe the killing of E. coli by the bacteriophage. For more advanced students, a discussion of nonsense mutations and nonsense suppressing mutations is included with the teacher background information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful addition to the kit. We use this kit every quarter without using up all the non-perishables. It's very helpful to only have to buy the refill instead of spending the money for the complete kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good kit. Easy for the students to follow. More practice on serial dilutions for them and an opportunity to work with viruses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well. The students enjoy this activity and get an opportunity to work with viruses. This also is another way for the students to practice serial dilutions.
