Abstract

The genome of bacteriophage Mu can integrate randomly in the chromosome of its host Escherichia coli, thereby causing mutations (Taylor, 1963). Random integration seems a more widespread phenomenon, since it was found that other DNA elements also show a more or less random integration: insertion sequences (IS) and transposons (Tn).
