The bacteriophages (viruses that infect bacteria and archeans) are among of the strangest denizens of the biosphere. Otherworldly, and mechanical in appearance, these entities have been objects of wonder ever since we have known of their existence. Perhaps most amazingly, bacteriophages have been found to be the most numerous biological entities on the planet by orders of magnitude!
