Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
Node: Norton Zinder was my first graduate student, and my collaborator
in important studies of phage-mediated transduction.  Cf our joint papers
and:    ZINDER ND
       40 YEARS AGO - THE DISCOVERY OF BACTERIAL TRANSDUCTION
       GENETICS 132: (2) 291-294 OCT 1992 

KW: pseudo-prototrophs; Salmonella; abortive transduction?; But both
parents recovered, so may be syntrophy;

?? Might have been transductants with continued phage lysis.

Cf also Hartmann's abortive transductants
