Bacteriophages. Biology and Applns by Elizabeth Kutter, Alexander Sulakvelidze

By Elizabeth Kutter, Alexander Sulakvelidze

In keeping with the emergence of pathogenic micro organism that can't be handled with present antibiotics, many researchers are revisiting using bacteriophages, or phages, to struggle multidrug-resistant micro organism. Bacteriophage as Antibiotics: Molecular Biology and purposes offers unprecedented, entire info on bacteriophages and their functions, comparable to phage treatment. It bargains ideas, media, and technique serious about separating and dealing with healing phages. photos, line drawings, and electron micrographs of phages also are integrated. With its huge technique, this ebook is an invaluable reference for microbiologists, hematologists, and infectious disorder researchers.

3. Cyanophages The Small and Tailless Phages. 1. 2. 3. 4. 8. 1. 1. INTRODUCTION THE NATURE OF BACTERIOPHAGES As discussed throughout this book, bacteriophages are viruses that only infect bacteria. They are like complex spaceships (Fig. 1), each carrying its genome from one susceptible bacterial cell to another in which it can direct the production of more phages. Each phage particle (virion) contains its nucleic acid genome (DNA or RNA) enclosed in a protein or lipoprotein coat, or capsid; the combined nucleic acid and capsid form the nucleocapsid.


However, much of the basic research about fundamental aspects of genetics occurred quite independently of any understanding of the physical nature of the gene. , the addition of lactose to the medium) or did the mutations occur randomly all the time and their existence become known by imposition of the selective growth conditions? The outcome of this research would have profound implications for the science of genetics, but also for a deeper understanding of evolutionary biology in general. The major problem in this work was one of experimental design: how to observe a rare event that happened in a huge population prior to the selection for the outcome of that event.
