    Unbiased homeologous recombination during pneumococcal transformation allows for multiple chromosomal integration events

    Jun Kurushima et al.
    DNA uptake and recombination in pneumococcus are highly efficient and independent of the cell-cycle or genetic location of the transformed allele, but limited to maximally 50% of the population.
