SOME BIRTH-DEATH AND MUTATION MODELS FOR PHAGE REPRODUCTION,
MICHIGAN STATE UNIV EAST LANSING
Pagination or Media Count:
Several models for phage reproduction within a bacterium have recently been discussed by Steinberg and Stahi 1961, Gani 1962 and Ohlsen 1963 all are effectively birthdeath type processes, with the first of these considering a single type of phage mutation. A detailed description of the biological processes involved may be found in Adams 1959, Weidel 1959, Sanders 1961 and Smith 1961. Some general models extending that of Steinberg and Stahl in which mutation may take place from normal a phages to mutant phages A are considered in this study.
