    Bacteriophages are the viruses of bacteria. They are a sequence of genomes which rotate from one bacterium to the next encased by capsids which are protein shells, which kill the bacteria in the process. Bacteriophages are immensely important to evolution and ecology of bacteria. They have colossal impacts on the carbon cycle. Phages also contribute to biology's comprehension of life at a molecular level. In addition, bacteriophages were essential to the evolution of genetic engineering. Phage therapy is the utilization of phages that can terminate bacteria or as a way to diminish the quantity or eradicate bacteria. Phage therapy has four dominant advantages over standard antibiotic treatment. To start, phage virions are genetically safe,…

Their name, bacteriophages, is derived from the idea that they are “bacteria eaters.” Due to their bacteria-destroying nature, they have been used in phage therapy in which they…

    Phage therapy has been a debated for many years. The discovery of bacteriophages in the 20th century by Frederick Twort and Felix D’Herelle led to contributions of many fields in science [1]. Such contribution can lead to curative methods for bacterial infections. Antibiotics are primarily the source to help with infections, but phage therapy has been in discussion for an option to replace antibiotics. The reason why it has been debated is that the limitations of phages due to its biological…

    Bacteriophages PROS (Advantages) Phage therapy has a lot of advantages more than antibiotics [39]. First of all, phages have a broad antibacterial activity even against antibiotic resistance bacteria [124, 125, 126] like MRSA as phage can be used as sanitizing agent against hospital acquired infections like MRSA [86]. Also a phage (pVp-1) was able to overcome the resistant strain of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in experimentally infected mice [127]. Phages can lyse bacteria in the supurrative…

    None of these very talented women got the recognition they truly deserved. Jocelyn Bell Burnell discovered pulsars and still fights for women's rights in science. Esther Lederberg discovered lambda phage and also was able to come up with a way to move bacteria from one petri dish to another. Chien-Shiung Wu helped make the discovery of atomic bombs and conducted many experiments on radiation detection and uranium enrichment. They are more recognized now, but during their lives, most people did…
