In light of the developing antibiotic crisis interest in phage therapy has been greatly renewed in the Western scientific community. At the end of the first bacteriophage era there were many problems with phage therapy, most importantly an insufficient understanding of what ‘phage’ actually was. This time, the advent of the genomic era is giving us a multitude of new tools to characterise phages themselves and the interaction with their hosts. In this talk, I will detail how we used a combination of sequence analysis tools to characterise the Intesti bacteriophage cocktail, a key commercial product of the Eliava Institute, Georgia, targeting gastrointestinal pathogens.

This talk is part of the Bacteriophage 2017 series.
