ly·sog·e·ny

 (lī-sŏj′ə-nē)
n.
The fusion of the nucleic acid of a bacteriophage with that of a host bacterium so that the potential exists for the newly integrated genetic material to be transmitted to daughter cells at each subsequent cell division.

lysogeny

(laɪˈsɒdʒənɪ)
n
(Microbiology) the biological process in which a bacterium is infected by a bacteriophage that integrates its DNA into that of the host such that the host is not destroyed
lysogenic adj
ThesaurusAntonymsRelated WordsSynonymsLegend:
Noun1.lysogeny - the condition of a host bacterium that has incorporated a phage into its own genetic material; "when a phage infects a bacterium it can either destroy its host or be incorporated in the host genome in a state of lysogeny"
condition - a mode of being or form of existence of a person or thing; "the human condition"
