Re:

... physical link between DNA and protein, i.e. the DNA is connected and expressed as only one gene and thus there is only one protein composed of the capsid protein and your protein of interest. Ok, that does make sense! But I found many websites/pdf files where they state it like this (eg.): "Physically ...
