About this book


The intention is to provide a defininitive reference work on the technological and therapeutic applications of bacteriophages. The main areas to be covered are indicated in the subtitles. It is intended to avoid an overdependence on reciting the history of the approach and rather to concentrate on its practical utility, albeit placing that in its appropriate context.


Bacteriophages Host resistance Phage infection Biocontrol agents Environmental Hygiene antibiotic resistance
