Bacteriophage Pendant


Product Description

mini-bacteriophage-02.pngThe Bacteriophage, one of the strangest denizens of the living world, is also among the most ubiquitous. Otherworldly, and mechanical in appearance, these entities have been objects of wonder ever since we have known of their existence, and with this meticulously modeled bacteriophage pendant, you can wear your appreciation for the miniscule marvels that pervade the biosphere!

The bacteriophages (viruses that infect bacteria and archeans) are a bewilderingly large and diverse group. This pendant depicts a T4 bacteriophage, which with its iconic “lunar-lander” design, is among the most recognizable forms in nature.

Beyond the inordinate fondness that Nature must hold for them, bacteriophages have proven to be remarkably useful to humans, in the study and manipulation of cells and biological molecules. Biology students, teachers, and professionals are all sure to appreciate, and proudly display this lovely emblem of Nature's complexity and diversity!

Comes with an adjustable-length 1.5mm leather necklace cord.
