The bacteriophage f1 is a small, single-stranded DNA-containing phage. The DNA is in a ring form containing about 6000 nucleotides. The phage particle itself is filamentous, does not kill its host cells, and is continuously extruded from the cell surface while the cells continue to grow (Marvin and Hohn, 1969).
