Bacteriophage: An alternate to antibiotic treatment?

With increase in antibiotic resistance in disease causing bacteria it is increasingly becoming difficult to combat infections. Consequently alternate treatment like phage therapy may gain back its lost importance. Like any other organisms cell gets infected by bacteria, bacterial cells can be also attacked by carefully selected specific virus called bacteriophages (phage shortly). These phages act by killing bacteria by incorporating them in their lifecycle.

CRISPR: Can we create new human-made species?

Gene-editing technology used to fit entire genome of yeast on a single large chromosome. The new finding can help in studying fundamental concepts in chromosome biology, including replication, recombination and segregation. CRISPR technology may even pave a way for developing completely human-made species in future.
