Clostridium difficile is an important human pathogen, phage have been investigated as alternative forma of treatment for the diseases it cases. However, phages also have an important role in the modification of bacterial genomes. In the case of C. difficile phages have been shown to modulate expression of virulence factors and have been implicated in transducing antibiotic resistance genes. In this talk I will review these properties and how phage interact with the host genome.
