Bacteriophage particle, computer artwork. Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. Particles (virions) are composed of an outer protein coat (capsid) encasing DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) or RNA (ribonucleic acid) that encodes the virion's genetic information. Bacteriophages are used in phage therapy to treat some bacterial illnesses.
