Research Abstract

Many harmful species of bacteria have evolved to gain resistance to most common antibiotics, leading to infections that are very hard to treat because of the overuse of antibiotics. As a solution for this problem we are using phage therapy and evolution to our advantage. Bacteriophage or also called phage is a virus that infects and replicates within bacteria and archaea. In this poster, I will describe the different experiments that I have conducted into developing a new therapy in my internship with Felix Biotechnology that could save us from the next global problem.
