Question:

In his transformation experiments, what did Griffith observe?

A) Mutant mice were resistant to bacterial infections.

B) Mixing a heat-killed pathogenic strain of bacteria with a living nonpathogenic strain can convert some of the living cells into the pathogenic form.

C) Mixing a heat-killed nonpathogenic strain of bacteria with a living pathogenic strain makes the pathogenic strain nonpathogenic.

D) Infecting mice with nonpathogenic strains of bacteria makes them resistant to pathogenic strains.

E) Mice infected with a pathogenic strain of bacteria can spread the infection to other mice.

Answer:
