The potential application of phage therapy for the control of bacterial biofilms has received increasing attention as resistance to conventional antibiotic agents continues to increase. The present… (More)
Interest in bacteriophages as therapeutic agents has recently been reawakened. Parenteral delivery is the most routinely-employed method of administration. However, injection of phages has numerous… (More)
Semi-arid regions with Mediterranean-type climates harbor exceptional biodiversity, but are increasingly threatened by invading exotic annual species and climatic changes, including drought. In… (More)
High-throughput genetics is a powerful approach to identify new genes involved in bacterial carbon catabolism. Here, we used genome-wide fitness assays to identify a novel pathway for… (More)
Using genome-wide mutant fitness assays in diverse bacteria, we identified novel oxidative pathways for the catabolism of 2-deoxy-d-ribose and 2-deoxy-d-ribonate. We propose that deoxyribose is… (More)
