Five single rII deletion mutants of phage T4 were spot-tested in all pairwise combinations to test for their ability to give r+ recombinants. The results are given in Table (a). Five different point mutations were then tested in the same way for their ability to recombine with the five deletions. These results are given in Table (b). In both tables, "0" indicates no recombination, while "+" indicates that recombinants were detected.
