carrier frequency for male and female is 1/30
so if male and female from same population marry that means each of them being carrier will be 1/30 X 1/30
and if they have children then chance of kid getting disease will be 1/4
1/30X1/30X1/4= 1/3600

when the lytic phage infects the E.coli (transduction) the clevage of bacterial DNA and synthesis of viral protein will be hapened then parts of bacterial DNA become package in viral capsis...the new phage with new genes can infect another bacterium and transfer these new combination of genes to another bacterial DNA so because of this new comination the primary gene T7 does not exist anymore

Individuals with underlying diabetes or disorders of the immune system are more likely to develop complications, including malignant otitis externa. In these individuals, rapid examination by an otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat physician) is very important.

Chronic otitis externa

  it is okay.

Transposons are sequences of DNA that can move or transpose themselves to new positions within the genome of a single cell. The mechanism of transposition can be either "copy and paste" or "cut and paste". Transposition can create phenotypically significant mutations and alter the cell's genome size

Genetic recombination is a process by which a molecule of nucleic acid (usually DNA, but can also be RNA) is broken and then joined to a different one. Recombination can occur between similar molecules of DNA, as in homologous recombination, or dissimilar molecules, as in non-homologous end joining.
