Microbial image of the month
I’ve previously posted an image of a single phage, but this month’s image shows phages in action, infecting a bacterial cell. With their tail fibres and capsid heads, I find the structure of phages simple yet exquisite, so when I come across a phage image as great as this one, I have to share it! Enjoy!
