As we learn more about the human microbiome and its regulatory effects on immune function and disease, it is becoming essential we understand the ecology of the bacteriophage that also reside within the system. There is currently a critical gap in our knowledge on the diversity of phages in the gut and which bacteria they infect. To tackle this, I am using methods to isolate bacteriophage from human samples and then identifying precise bacteria species they infect.
