Bacteriophage T5 was digested with the restriction endonucleases HindIII and EcoRI and the resulting fragments were inserted into the plasmid pBR322 and the bacteriophage lambda gtWES as vectors. Approx. 15% of the phage genome was recovered in recombinant clones. The recombinants were characterized by restriction analysis, DNA/DNA hybridization employing Southern blots, and ability to complement or recombine with amber mutants of T5. The results obtained allow revisions of the physical map of the T5 genome and partial correlation of the physical map with the genetic map.
