Genomic investigations of bacteriocins and bacteriophages in Streptococcus pneumoniae and other streptococci

Abstract:

Streptococcus pneumoniae (the “pneumococcus”) is a major public health problem, leading to significant morbidity and mortality worldwide. The global increase in antimicrobial-resistant pneumococci is of serious concern, which necessitates investigations into novel antimicrobial strategies. Two promising areas of research are the exploitation of phages (viruses that infect bacteria) and bacteriocins (antimicrobial peptides produced by bacterial species to kill other bacteria). This...
