A Smaller Flea

The purpose of this blog is to share our appreciation for the study of microbial viruses, the viruses that infect Eubacteria (also known as bacteriophage), Archaea, and microbial Eukaryotes. They dominate our planet's ecosystem, serve as a profoundly useful model system for understanding life at its simplest, possess a dizzying array of powerful molecular tools we can borrow, and make steadfastly vicious allies in our fights with problematic microbes. Our name is based on the nursery rhyme "The Siphonaptera," which eloquently describes a beautiful phenomena found more clearly in the viruses that infect microbes than anywhere else.
The Siphonaptera:
Big fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
and so, ad infinitum.

And the great fleas, themselves, in turn
Have greater fleas to go on;
While these again have greater still,
And greater still, and so on.
