Viral Production, Infection and Testing

Laboratory of Bacteriocins Biology

Research Services: 
  • Phage biology (screening, isolation of pure stable genetic lines, identification of phage life strategy);
  • Bacteriocins biology (screening for high-level producers,  developing approaches for high level induction);
  • Phage and bacteriocins concentration and purification facility (ultra-speed and gradient centrifugation, ion-exchange chromatography);
  • Long-term preservation systems for phage products;
  • Identification and analysis of phage virion and genome structure (restrictions mapping, PCR, virion protein range, gross phage morphology via transmission electron microscopy, HPLC);
  • Bioinformatic analysis and annotation of complete phage genomes;
  • Recombinant DNA techniques for target phage proteins.
