Bacterial Genetics Phage Genetics Horizontal Gene Transfer Seeking help

Hello, I’m working on my bachelor’s thesis and I need specific information about phage and bacterial genetics. Do you know or could you help me find sources, if it is possible for bacteria to acquire and use phage genes for their own benefit after they neutralise phage infection (through CRISPR/CAS for example)? I don’t mean lysogeny, pseudo-lysogeny, or phage fragment storage for “bacterial immunity” but something like horizontal gene transfer from degraded phage DNA to the bacterial genome. Do you know any papers that discuss this topic? Email:
