    1. Hi Nadine! The phage was named after the crook in its tail found in the electron micrograph image.

    1. Hello Caleb! The appearance of the phage usually makes no difference in the function but tail length affects the way a phage will infiltrate and infect a bacterial cell. The appearance is primarily useful in identifying what cluster a phage belongs to.
