Bacteriophage biology has been the source of many of the fundamental paradigms of molecular genetics. The infective cycles of phages like l, T4, and T7 have been characterized in great detail; the precise sequence of gene expression and many of the decisive regulatory events are known. Indeed, the only developmental step in biology that is sufficiently well understood to be quantitatively modelled at the molecular level is the choice between the lytic and lysogenic pathways in phage l (McAdams… CONTINUE READING
