2. I'm not sure what "Methods to mutate in reaction to antibiotics is shared" means.

I know there is bacterial conjugation which allows genetic transfer between bacteria. Is that what you mean? Do you know what prompts bacterial conjugation? I'd always assumed chemistry caused it; but I've never looked into it. Is it preferentially performed under stressful environmental conditions?
