Comments p.852 caption to figure 1:"Life cycle of a bacterial virus. The ejection of the genome into the host cell happens within a minute for phage like ? and T4 (BNID 111587). The eclipse period (time between the viral adsorption and the first appearance of the progeny) can be as short as ~10–15 min (BNID 111585). The packaging of the genome into a single capsid takes ~5 min (primary source). Lysis of the bacterial cell is completed in <1h (BNID 111586)."
