ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF FREE-NITROGEN FIXER BACTERIAL STRAINS (Azotobacter sp.) AND THEIR PHAGES FROM MAIZE RHIZOSPHERE-SOIL AT TAIF
We are focusing on isolation of bacteriophage(s) specific to some free N2-fixer bacteria from rhizosphere and non-rhizosphere soils of Taif region of KSA as a first record for such study in Taif areaExpand

Isolation and characterization of phages infecting Bacillus cereus
TLDR
The objective is to isolate and characterize bacteriophages (phages) that infect the foodborne pathogen Bacillus cereus and characterize them for the first time. Expand
Frequency of morphological phage descriptions
TLDR
Bacteriophages are listed by morphotypes and host genera including archaebacteria and rickettsiae and probably reflects the evolutionary history of bacteria. Expand
Safety evaluation of sous vide‐processed ready meals
Aims: To assess survival, growth and toxin production of spore‐forming bacteria in sous vide products exposed to a relatively high heat treatment.
Isolation of Marine Bacteriophages from Sea Water
TLDR
The author carried out the isolation of marine bacteriophages from sea water and deter-mined the morphological character of five of them, finding them to be highly specific to the original host and virulent. Expand
Insecticidal crystal proteins of Bacillus thuringiensis.
TLDR
Studies on the biochemical mechanisms of toxicity suggest that B. thuringiensis crystal proteins induce the formation of pores in membranes of susceptible cells, and these approaches are potentially powerful strategies for the protection of agriculturally important crops against insect damage. Expand
Safety Evaluation of Sous Vide-Processed Products with Respect to Nonproteolytic Clostridium botulinum by Use of Challenge Studies and Predictive Microbiological Models
TLDR
It was concluded that the safety of sous vide products needs to be carefully evaluated product by product, and time-temperature combinations used in thermal treatments should be reevaluated to increase the efficiency of processing, and the use of additional antibotulinal hurdles, such as biopreservatives, should be assessed.

Tailed Bacteriophages: The Order Caudovirales
TLDR
This chapter discusses the common properties of tailed phages and potential criteria for their classification as an order and situating tailedphages with respect to other viruses, as well as investigating the three-dimensional structure of capsid and tail proteins. Expand

TLDR
Encouraging data, combined with the fact that drug-resistant bacteria have become a global crisis, have created a window of opportunity for phage therapy to be tested anew, this time using modem technologies and placebo-controlled designs. Expand
