    What is the difference between a T2 bacteriophage and a T4 bacteriophage? They both attack bacteria...right?

    Thanks

    Any phage attacks bacteria. Phage means 'eat' (same root as 'phagocytosis,' for example) and in this context is short for 'bacteriophage' (bacteria eater). Coliphage attack coliform bacteria, for example.

    The differences between T2 and T4 are interesting. Your question sounds as though it may be a homework question. Have you tried Google or Wikipedia?
