Transformation (genetics): Quiz


Question 1: In 1944 this "transforming factor" was identified as being genetic by Oswald Avery, Colin MacLeod, and ________.
Roger Y. TsienMaclyn McCartyOliver SmithiesBarbara McClintock

Question 2: For such genomes this method is a form of ________ and not a real transformation, since the inserted genes never reach the nucleus of the cell and do not integrate into the host genome.
Optical transfectionTransfectionHorizontal gene transferTransposon

GenomeBacteriaAgrobacteriumAgrobacterium tumefaciens
