Abstract: The Bacillus subtilis temperate bacteriophages phi 105 and SP02 are incapable of transduction of the small, multicopy drug resistance plasmids pUB110 and pCM194. Cloning endonuclease-generated fragments of phi 105 or SP02 DNA into each of the plasmids renders the chimeric derivatives susceptible to transduction specifically by the phage whose deoxyribonucleic acid is present in the chimera. The majority of phage deoxyribonucleic acid fragments identified that render plasmids transducible by phi 105 or SP02 app…
