Bacterial evolution: bacteria play pass the gene.

Abstract:
DNA transfer between related bacterial species is enhanced by species-specific uptake sequences. These sequences have been used to identify genes that have been transferred from Haemophilus to Neisseria, providing a clear example of interspecific transfer of DNA in the evolution of the pathogenic Neisseria.
