A bacteriophage is a type of virus that infects bacteria. Bacteriophage are likely the most numerous "organisms" on Earth [1][2]

The main article for this category is Bacteriophages.

I've written previously about bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, and I studied them for my first lab project. So I was pretty excited by a lovely little pearl in PLoS Pathogens last month discussing mycobacteriophages; the viruses that ...

Bacteriophages are viruses that infect the particular host bacteria on which they depend in order to proliferate. After infection and replication, they produce endolysins, which target bacterial cell walls from within, causing the cell to burst and die ...

Transformation involves the uptake of naked DNA by competent bacterial cells, transduction involves the transfer of genetic material via bacteriophages, and conjugation involves transfer of DNA via sexual pilus and requires cell-to-cell contact. John ...
