||P.221 left column top paragraph: "Within 2 to 3 min after infection of Escherichia coli cells with T-even bacteriophage, the nucleoids of the bacteria undergo "nuclear disruption" during which the host DNA moves from its largely central location in the host cell into tight juxtaposition with the cell membrane (primary sources)."
