- 1991, Maxine Singer and Paul Berg, Genes And Genomes, →ISBN:
- After the transducing phage DNA is introduced into the recipient cell genome, the cell acquires, in addition to phage genes, genetic information that originated from the phage's previous host. Thus, in specialized transduction, the phage serves as a vector for transferring genes from one cell to another; only cellular genes that are close to the viral genome integration site are transducible by this mechanism.
- (transitive, information) To transfer or convert information from one form or medium to another.
