Structure and Shape of bacteriophage

These have two shapes (structural forms): Cubical: These are regular solid or icosahedral (having 20 triangular faces). Helical Symmetry: They are rod shaped. Many phages consist of head and tail. The heads are polyhedral but tails are rod shaped. STRUCTURE OF BACTERIOPHAGE Bacteriophage meaning bacteria eater. Earlier workers studied few phages that infect Escherichia coli. Of these the best phages ...
