Alternative bacteriophage life cycles: the carrier state of Campylobacter jejuni (2014)
Journal Article
Siringan, P., Connerton, P. L., Cummmings, N. J., & Connerton, I. F. (2014). Alternative bacteriophage life cycles: the carrier state of Campylobacter jejuni. Open Biology, 4(3), doi:10.1098/rsob.130200. ISSN 2046-2441

Members of the genus Campylobacter are frequently responsible for human enteric disease, often through consumption of contaminated poultry products. Bacteriophages are viruses that have the potential to control pathogenic bacteria, but understanding... Read More
