Product Description
(Note: this model was previously erroneously described as bacteriophage T7, which has a different life cycle entirely and looks somewhat different. Sorry! I will update the name shortly after I work out how to preserve a few permalinks. Also, I have removed metal from printing options after a customer's order failed to print; sorry again!)
