Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
The rise in antibiotic resistance has prompted a renewed interest in bacteriophage research. A study of the molecular basis for recognition of the bacterial host has applications in detection, vaccine design and control of bacterial infections.
