Felix d'Herelle first demonstrated, about 90 years ago, the presence of bacteriophages in human and animal body microbiota. Our comprehension of the impact of naturally occurring bacteriophages on symbiotic bacteria, and of their role in general homeostasis of macro-organism, nevertheless remains quite fragmentary. Analysis of data in various human- and animal body-associated microbial systems on phage occurrence, diversity, host specificity and dynamics, as well as host occurrence, specificity… CONTINUE READING
