'''The isolation, characterization and pre-clinical screening of novel bacteriophages as therapies for antibiotic resistant, sexually-transmitted bacterial infections'''.
''Next Call: 1/20/12 8:00pm PST/10:00pm CST'' (meeting notes available [ http:// www.shrib.com/ phage_therapy/ here .)]
'''Discussion Topics Include''':
*Introduction into the project
to of Phage in to() and , and () -of.
*Discussion of organizational ( non-hierarchical) structure
*Introduction to molecular genetics of Phage (lytic vs. lysogenic)
* Lytic phage kill; Lysogenic incorporate in host genome then wait for opportunity to become lytic!
* Lysogenic phage are induced ( UV light, chemicals) and prophage DNA is excised, phage are created, bacteria lyse!
*Methods of Phage Isolation and Characterization
*"Isolation and Characterization of Bacteriophages for Neisseria" L.N. Phelps, J. gen. Virol ( 1967) 1, 529- 532.
*Molecular Manipulation of Phage
*Molecular Biology and Immunology of target organisms.
