Viruses over antibiotics: Determining the 3D structure of phages at atomic resolution closer thanks to new method

04:56 EDT 3 Jul 2017 | Science Daily

Phages have become a focus of research in the battle against antibiotic resistance. These bacteria-eating viruses have already proven effective in experiments against multidrug-resistant bacteria. However, the atomic structure of these small helpers is unknown. Researchers have now succeeded in developing a new method that makes it possible to determine the complex structure in detail, down to the atomic level.
