Abstract
Bacteriophages are viruses that attack bacteria and kill them through the lytic replication cycle. Many studies have reported that phages are more specific to bacteria than antibiotics are; thus, phage therapy has many potential applications in human medicine, with the advantage of having few side effects (Keen, 2012). Investigating the mechanisms of bacteria-killing phages will therefore aid in the development of antibacterial drugs.
