Jan 6, 2012 - Bacteriophages: Biology and Applications provides unparalleled, comprehensive information on bacteriophages and their applications, such as phage therapy. An especially groundbreaking article by [V.A.] Fischetti describes the use of specific phage lysozymes in the control of infections by bacteria such as Bacillus anthracis and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Citrobacter rodentium phages: Characterization and screening for phage therapy applications. Levin, B., Bull, J., “Phage Therapy Revisited: The Population Biology of a Bacterial Infection and its Treatment with Bacteriophage Antibiotics,” The American Naturalist. Although Here, we provide a systematic analysis of intragenomic variation in bacteriophage codon usage, using 74 fully sequenced viruses that infect a diverse range of bacterial hosts. Even though the discipline is in its infancy, there are A second study described by Ruder et al produced bacteriophages that, once inside an infected bacterium, turned off the mechanisms that protect it from antibiotics. Many years of basic research on the nature of phages have provided a wealth of information on fundamental The large scale fermentation and bioprocessing of bacteriophage. Motivated by Sharp P, Li W (1987) The codon adaptation index–a measure of directional synonymous codon usage bias, and its potential applications. The phage DNA/RNA and capsids assemble, . Jul 18, 2013 - However, after the discovery of penicillin and other antibiotics the research into the use of phages was abandoned in the West but its application continues in Eastern Europe, particularly in Georgia. Apr 29, 2011 - After this, the phage uses the machinery of the cell to make viral proteins, which happens exactly the same way as if the bacterial cell were making its own proteins, except viral RNA is now transcribed, not bacterial. Nov 17, 2011 - It's no accident, then, that a great deal of hope and effort is being invested in developing synthetic biology for many difficult to treat diseases such as cancers, antibiotic resistant infections or genetic disorders. Oct 7, 2009 - Simulations of impulsive laser scattering of biological protein assemblies: Application to M13 bacteriophage. €�I've learned that students will rise to the challenge that you put in front of them,” says Bryan Gibbon, a biology professor at Baylor University who taught the SEA course for the first time last fall. Jan 27, 2011 - Faculty say the course has changed how they think science should be taught. Feb 29, 2008 - Across all kingdoms of biological life, protein-coding genes exhibit unequal usage of synonymous codons. Jun 18, 2012 - Bacteriophages (phages) are obligate molecular parasites of their hosts, the bacteria and they are, arguably, the most abundant biological entities on Earth. Apr 4, 2008 - Although exciting, there are many other uses of phage that are just as revolutionary, but tend to slip by. E 80, 041909 – Published 7 October 2009.
