Bacteriophages – video
If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough. In this insightful video, Martha Clokie, University of Leicester (UK), gives the basis of what are bacteriophages and how can we use it to our benefit.

Bacteriophages, also known as phages, are viruses that infect and replicate within bacteria. They are found in virtually all environments where bacteria exist, including the poultry industry. Phages are specific to particular types of bacteria and can infect and replicate within those bacteria, leading to their destruction.
In the poultry industry, phages are sometimes used as a natural alternative to antibiotics for controlling bacterial infections. They can be effective against a wide range of bacteria, including those that are resistant to antibiotics. However, the use of phages in the poultry industry is still relatively limited and more research is needed to fully understand their potential for controlling bacterial infections in poultry.
