In the current scenario where antibiotics no longer work, the need for alternative strategies have looked at phage therapy and I have been actively involved in research with bacteriophages and weigh the odds of phage therapy verses phage mediated gene transfer. Focus areas are on phage-based therapeutics for human therapeutic use and biocontrol in foods and mechanisms of antimicrobial gene transfer mediated by phages.
