A bacteriophage, also known informally as a phage, is a virus that infects and replicates within Bacteria and Archaea.
A base pair (bp) is a unit consisting of two nucleobases bound to each other by hydrogen bonds.
A beta helix is a protein structure formed by the association of parallel beta strands in a helical pattern with either two or three faces.
A capsid is the protein shell of a virus.
The Caudovirales are an order of viruses also known as the tailed bacteriophages (cauda is Latin for "tail").
The cell (from Latin cella, meaning "small room") is the basic structural, functional, and biological unit of all known living organisms.
A chromosome (from Ancient Greek: χρωμόσωμα, chromosoma, chroma means colour, soma means body) is a DNA molecule with part or all of the genetic material (genome) of an organism.
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a thread-like chain of nucleotides carrying the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses.
In biology, a gene is a sequence of DNA or RNA that codes for a molecule that has a function.
Infection is the invasion of an organism's body tissues by disease-causing agents, their multiplication, and the reaction of host tissues to the infectious agents and the toxins they produce.
Enterobacteria phage λ (lambda phage, coliphage λ) is a bacterial virus, or bacteriophage, that infects the bacterial species Escherichia coli (E. coli).
Lysogeny, or the lysogenic cycle, is one of two cycles of viral reproduction (the lytic cycle being the other).
The lytic cycle is one of the two cycles of viral reproduction (referring to bacterial viruses or bacteriophages), the other being the lysogenic cycle.
Molecular biology is a branch of biology which concerns the molecular basis of biological activity between biomolecules in the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between DNA, RNA, proteins and their biosynthesis, as well as the regulation of these interactions.
A monomer (mono-, "one" + -mer, "part") is a molecule that "can undergo polymerization thereby contributing constitutional units to the essential structure of a macromolecule".
Mosaic viruses are plant viruses that cause the leaves to have a speckled appearance.
In biology, a mutation is the permanent alteration of the nucleotide sequence of the genome of an organism, virus, or extrachromosomal DNA or other genetic elements.
In genetics, an operon is a functioning unit of DNA containing a cluster of genes under the control of a single promoter.
Podoviridae is a family of viruses in the order Caudovirales.
Proteins are large biomolecules, or macromolecules, consisting of one or more long chains of amino acid residues.
Salmonella enterica subsp.
Transduction is the process by which foreign DNA is introduced into a cell by a virus or viral vector.
A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms.
