    is any process in which an organism incorporates genetic material from another organism without being the offspring of that organism. By contrast, vertical transfer occurs when an organism receives genetic material from its ancestor, e.g. its parent or a species from which it evolved. a human obtaining a gene from a non-related human or another species is an example of a horizontal transfer.
