I've been looking around in the literature for a generalized transducing
phage which can be used in Pseudomonas putida to move
chromosomal markers from one strain to another (an equivalent to P1 in E.
coli, or F116 or G101 in P. aeruginosa). So far I have come up with
almost nothing. Does anyone know of such phages, or haven't they been
reported for putida?
thanks a lot
