The role of bacteriophage in the gut ecosystem

phage 2

The bacteriophage located in the gut ecosystem outnumber the bacteria cells in both quantity and diversity. Intriguingly, the role of bacteriophage in shaping the gut ecosystem is an uncharted area of study. We are studying the molecular and dynamic role of bacteriophage communication with the gut bacteria, as well as their effects on the mammalian host.
