How to Genetically Modify a phage for Medical Purposes | by Alejandro Leyva | May, 2021

By Alejandro Leyva Bacteriophages are viruses that are used primarily to treat antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections. Environmentally, bacteriophages manage and balance bacteria populations by invading the prokaryotic bacteria and combusting them. Ranging around 24–200 nanometers, most phages specialize in destroying a single species of bacteria; phage treatment requires a variety of phage species to cure bacterial… Read More How to Genetically Modify a phage for Medical Purposes | by Alejandro Leyva | May, 2021
