Division M: Index of phage pages

 

phage picture
 
 
For convenience, here phages are indexed by family, according to the taxonomic method that defines family by genome type and virion morphology. Links are provided in the index to one or more pages of Phage Factsheets, with links or references to provide access to methods, to genomic information, and to the literature, and also to micrographs and other types of images as available. We chose examples that are of historical interest or have some interesting application.
