In the Avery experiment, when the dead strain of dangerous bacteria turn the non dangerous strain of bacteria dangerous. I learned it had something to do with bacteriophage, but wouldn't just just make new bacteriophage? Why would that make them into the dangerous bacteria?

The heat killed the proteins from the harmful bacteria but left its DNA intact, a process known as transformation then occured to have the harmless bacteria intake a part of the harmful bacteria and then contaminate and kill the mice
So like capsids I believe they're called? I didn't know a dead bacteria could produce that, but that idea had occurred to me.
in the Avery experiment there are no phages involved - only DNA. The Hershey-Chase experiment involves bacteriophages.
