Bacteriophage, disease and the microbiome
from Contagion Live
With the recognition of the microbiome, exploring how bacteriophage shape its environment has become a matter worth investigating. A symposium at ASM Microbe 2019 considered some specific examples and also zoomed out for a higher-altitude view of the microbiome. Yael Litvak, Ph.D., from the University of California, Davis, has looked at how bacteriophage participate in the expansion of Shiga toxin-producing bacterial pathogens in the gut.
