Bacterial viral transformation

Bacterial viral transformation is a process whereby naked DNA molecules are taken up (consumed) by bacterial cells. When this transformation is combined with techniques for antibiotic selection, bacteria can be induced to uptake particular DNA molecules. Bacteria able to consume DNA are termed “competent”. They achieve this status when treated with calcium chloride ions in their early growth phase.
