The biological control, by bacteriophages, in raw animal by-products has not been studied. Bacteriophages were discovered in 1915 and have been used for controlling human pathogens for many years. Although several factors affect the effectiveness of ...

"The fact that bacteriophages induce immune responses in bacteria and may also transmit genomic material into bacteria that may alter their function makes these viruses extremely important and we need to know much more about them." Meiofauna in the ...

Parallel examples are seen in the bacteriophages, with those viruses often mediating the effects of bacterial parasites on eukaryotic hosts. Thus, like other viruses, virophages may play a critical role in interspecies dynamics and entire ecosystems.

Along with the plasma comes a flood of cells from the immune system called leukocytes, including bacteriophages that directly ingest bacteria, and enzymes that attack the structure of the pathogen. As the infection or injury abates, the body returns to ...

The project was to find bacteriophages (a type of virus that infects bacteria, not people) that could be genetically engineered to bind to inorganic materials that they would not normally have an affinity for—in particular, semiconductors. If that was ...

When the team sequenced the genomes of all the viruses in the ancient poop, they discovered that most of them were bacteria-loving viruses called bacteriophages, or “phages” for short. Phages are the cargo ships of the bacterial world, picking up genes ...

“Our evidence demonstrates that bacteriophages represent an ancient reservoir of resistance genes and that this dates at least as far back as the Middle Ages,” says Desnues. “We were interested in viruses because these are 100 times more abundant than ...
