Organization of Phage DNA During Its Replication in the Bacterial Cell

  • Anna S. Tikhonenko


As Thomas [68] points out, DNA molecules can assume a contracted, compact configuration. This property is characteristic of the DNA of chromosomes, spores, heads of spermatozoa, and so on, and also for the compact arrangement of the DNA within the phage head. The study of the organization of DNA within the phage capsid may shed light on the causes and the requirements determining the manner of this organization.
