Bacteriophage USB Thumb Drive

$24.75

mini-bacteriophage.pngWherever there is life, there are bacteria and archaeans... and wherever these microbes exist, there are bacteriophages! Countless Terrabytes of genetic information are being shuttled about each moment by bacteriophages (or phages), and so these amazing entities are a particularly appropriate subject for a flash-memory thumb-drive.

Our bacteriophage USB thumb-drive is the perfect data-transfer device for biologists, and anyone else with an interest in the microbial world. Depicting a typical T4 bacteriophage, this flash drive is modeled with attention to detail and accuracy, right down to the pattern of capsomeres on the phage's prolate head. A high quality solid pewter casting sets this piece apart from ordinary thumb-drives, and makes it an enduring gift for biology nerds and others!

USB-2 Compatible

Memory Capacity 32GB (equivalent to 128 billion base-pairs (bp))
