A model is presented for the self-assembly and operation of a bacteriophage comparable with the T4 bacteriophage that infects Escherichia coli. The model treats protein molecules as simple units obeying the principle free energy minimization, and exhibiting the properties of quasi-equivalence and conformational switching. A computer program incorporating the model has been developed. The results of simulation using this program are presented.
