What are the potential impacts of finding that the gene was most likely involved in Conjugation instead of gene repair?
Potential impacts of finding that this gene was most likely involved in conjugation is that it could be another defense mechanism for itself. Conjugation is when two bacterias come together and exchange DNA creating more bacteria’s with their DNA also being passed down. Instead of having DNA damage repairs it could just start reproducing the ones that survived the damage and continue to pass down these genes.
