Why does conjugation with an Hfr donor result in a much higher rate of gene transfer than conjugation with an F+ donor?

0 votes
An F+ donor's T strand is slow to reach the pilus.

                The Hfr donor segment must undergo recombination in the recipient.

                An F+ donor makes fewer pili.

                The F+ donor segment must undergo recombination in the recipient.

                The Hfr donor transfers genes from the chromosome and not the plasmid.
