Comments P.411 left column top paragraph:"A crucial first step in the life cycle of most bacterial viruses (i.e., phage) involves binding of the virion to a receptor protein in the host cell membrane followed by injection of the phage DNA. The viral genome is typically ~10µm long, and its translocation from outside to inside the host cell is accomplished over times that vary from seconds to minutes."
