A bacterial cell which has received genetic material by conjugation with another bacterium.
- After overnight incubation the transconjugants were replica plated onto the same selective medium, omitting the other growth factors or substituting arabinose for glucose.
- Fitness estimates are complicated, in principle, by segregants and transconjugants that arise during competitions between plasmid-bearing and plasmid-free cells.
- We assume that focal gene transfer from chromosomals is extremely rare and that once the plasmid transfer occurs, the transconjugant will deterministically sweep to fixation.
