1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Natalie J. Ma on May 31, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm doing thesis work with phages, so I got in contact with a phage lab on campus who recommended this book. It's great for anyone first learning about phages, and continues to be a useful reference even after years of research (according to the lab I contacted). The reading is clear and and interesting, and it intersperses descriptions of the phage with the experiments used to obtain them.

The book is composed of three parts, with the first being an overview of phage history, phylogeny and biology. The second part is chapters on the specific 'families' of phages, including composition, genes, and mechanism of infection. The third part is chapters on application of phages, including phage display, phage contamination in fermentation plants, and phages as therapeutics.

You can find all of the figures form the book here, if you're interested in a preview: http://www.thebacteriophages.org/
