Online today in #MGen : How we can use transcriptomic data to reveal new temperate phage biology… This started with a simple idea and became a nice proof of concept. And one of the last papers from my PhD in @jay_salsa lab !
( a thread ⤵️ ) @MicrobioSoc Image
Phages can be broadly classified into two groups: temperate and virulent (or lyosogenic and lytic if you prefer). Temperate phages are by far the most interesting of the two! (Sorry phage therapists). This is because:
temperate phages can integrate their genomes into the DNA of bacterial hosts and manipulate their biology with new genes (=accessory/moron genes). For example, so many professional bacterial pathogens rely upon prophage-encoded toxins and virulence factors. Image
