Revisiting BYOG: Bring Your Own Gene

Image
For this, my last post as co-blogger, I chose to loop back to my very first post about my favorites among the many Small Things, the phages. That was BYOG: Bring Your Own Gene, published in March of 2008, recounting what was at the time a totally new story for me. Amazing! Those ingenious cyanophages brought along genes to keep the energy flowing for phage replication by maintaining active photosynthesis in their doomed cyanobacterial host.
