Abstract : A sequential replication map of the chromosome of Bacillus licheniformis was constructed using the method of gene-frequency analysis of Yoshikawa and Sueoka. Our analysis of 11 genetic markers was based on the hypothesis that the chromosome initiated replication at a fixed origin and proceeded in a linear fashion to the terminus. The proposed locations of markers were validated by contransformation and cotransduction analyses. Bacteriophage SP-15 cotransduced markers that failed to show linkage by transformation. (Author)
