Researchers have used bacteria as bait and have identified two phages or bacterial-food organisms
The study, presented on Sunday at the annual meeting of the American Society of Microbiology, showed that two researchers used the bacteria as bait and identified two phages or bacteria that can swallow bacteria from their own kitchen mushrooms
the sponge is exposed to all sorts of microbes, thus forming a huge microbial of bacteria and providing rich food sources for phages.
"Our study illustrates the value of looking for a microbial environment that could contain potentially beneficial phages," said Brianna Weiss, a science student at the New York Institute of Technology, in a statement, the researchers exchanged the two phages to see if they could infect the isolated bacteria of the other person, and find that the phages kill the bacteria of the other.
They compared the DNA of the two isolated strains and found they belonged to a rod-shaped group of microbes common in the stool. and microbes can cause hospital infections
Although the two bacterial strains are closely related, researchers have found chemical differences between them in biochemical tests, which reveals that these phages are not picky, and differences are important for understanding the the range of bacteria that a phage can infect, which is also key to determining its ability to cure specific antibiotic-resistant infections, "Weiss said.
