This chapter on Streptomyces focuses on the need to draw attention to the progress in developing systems for genetic manipulation in actinomycetes. A significant fraction of this progress has depended on approaches first used in Streptomyces species.
Interestingly, the largest open reading frame in IS is related to that of members of the IS family. Education. Bibb was educated at the University of East Anglia where he graduated with a BSc in Biological Sciences and was awarded a PhD in for studies of plasmids in Streptomyces coelicolor.
Research. Bibb does research on. The regulation of secondary metabolism (antibiotic production) in streptomycetes; Functional genomics in Streptomyces, particularly transcriptome and proteome analysisAlma mater: University of East Anglia. Abstract. Genetic exchange in Streptomyces was first revealed when prototrophic recombinants were recovered from mixed cultures of pairs of auxotrophic derivatives of several wild-type strains (1, 8, 25, 63, 65).
A conjugative mechanism, rather than transformation or transduction, was invoked to account for gene exchange because no recombinants were detected without prolonged physical contact Cited by: The complete nucleotide sequence including the novel telomere sequence of Streptomyces linear plasmid pSHK1 consists of ,bp, genes, in which 51 genes resemble those of the linear.

Gen. Microbiol. Cited by: 1. Genetic mapping of the chromosome of Streptomyces coelicolor A3(2) began with the analysis of haploid recombinants selected from matings. A physical map of the S. coelicolor chromosome has recently been constructed, using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of AseI and DraI fragments.
