Bacteriophage Structure and Mechanism of Action, and their Application in Medical and Industrial Biotechnologies - Online Event (17th-19th of January, 2017) - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Bacteriophage - Online Event (17th-19th of January, 2017)" webinar to their offering.

This annual event will discuss emerging research relating to bacteriophage structure and mechanism of action, and their application in medical and industrial biotechnologies.

As one of the most abundant biological entities on earth, bacteriophages are major drivers of bacterial adaptive evolution through the predator-prey roles of the phage-bacterium interaction and through the adaptive impacts of lysogeny and lysogenic conversion.

Bacteriophage biology underpins many biochemical reagents and technologies, indispensible for modern molecular biology, and phages continue to be exploited in several areas of biotechnology, including diagnostics, prophylaxis and other aspects of food microbiology.

Furthermore, the use of bacteriophages as natural alternatives to antibiotics (known as phage therapy) are of increasing interest for the treatment of human and animal disease in the face of rising levels of antibiotic resistance.

This meeting will bring together researchers working with phages across these disciplines to encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing.

This event is aimed at those interested in the biology of bacteriophages and their applications in biotechnology, including research scientists, academics and pharmaceutical professionals.
