Deep Dive into the Characteristics of Phages to Exploit Their Host-Toxic Properties

Time: 9:50 am
day: Day Two


  • Exploitation of the dark matter in phage genomes to find novel targets to develop new antibiotics
  • Phages have evolved to control and take over the metabolism of its host bacterium including the use of gene products that are directly toxic
  • Screening phage genomes for toxic phage proteins to use them for target identification
