Cover photograph (Copyright © 2010, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.): Artistic interpretation (graphic collage) by Hannah Heilmann of the ongoing battle between virulent phage and their bacterial hosts. Virulent phages and their bacterial hosts represent an unusual sort of predator-prey system where each time a prey is eaten, hundreds of new predators are born. Despite the apparent effectiveness of the phage predators, they manage to avoid driving their bacterial prey to extinction. (See related article in March 2010, vol. 84, no. 6, p. 3016.)
