Caption: Bacteriophages destroying a bacterium, artwork. Image 3 of 3. Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. In previous stages, the bacteriophages injected their genetic material into the bacterium, and this genetic material was incorporated by the bacterium and used to build new bacteriophages. In the final stage (shown here), the new bacteriophages burst out of the bacterium, killing it. For a sequence showing this, see images C002/3774 to C002/3776.
