Bacteriophage therapy against plant, animal and human pathogens
TLDR
The current knowledge on phage therapy, its advantages and potential drawbacks are summarized and the application of phages against plant pathogens, especially Erwinia amylovora, and the current status of phage Therapy against food-borne, animal and human pathogens is presented.

TLDR
This paper examines the trajectories of the curiously parallel histories of the cancer viruses and highlights the similarities and differences between the ways in which prevailing ideas about the nature of viruses, heredity and infection drove researchers from disparate disciplines and geographic locations to develop their ideas and achieve some consensus.
Characterization of Viral Communities in Soil, Activated Sludge, and Influent
This study is the first viral metagenomic analysis of activated sludge and influent samples as well as the first comparison between culture-dependent and –independent analyses of viral communities. A
Biocommunication of Phages
Phages have serious effects on global energy and nutrient cycles. Phages actively compete for host. They can distinguish between ‘self’ and ‘non-self’ (complement same, preclude others). They process
Dominant Vibrio cholerae phage exhibits lysis inhibition sensitive to disruption by a defensive phage satellite
TLDR
This work identifies the ICP1-encoded holin, teaA, and antiholin, arrA that mediate lysis inhibition and shows that an MGE, the defensive phage satellite PLE, collapses lysis inhibited phages, highlighting the importance of lysis timing during infection and parasitization.
Investigating the diversity and evolution of temperate actinobacteriophages
TLDR
A large collection of phages infecting hosts in the phylum Actinobacteria is investigated to expand the understanding of temperate phage diversity and evolution and it has identified genetic systems that can be used to develop new genetic tools.

A survey has been made of the different theories put forth to explain the nature of ultra-microscopic viruses, and it has been concluded as probable that they are representatives of some precellular
Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease (AHPND): Virulence, Pathogenesis and Mitigation Strategies in Shrimp Aquaculture
