Center for Phage Technology

Bacteriophages or phage, are viruses that kill bacteria. Coupled with modern DNA-based biotechnology, phage have enormous potential as “green” anti-bacterial agents. The Center for Phage Technology (CPT) investigates the application of phage to combat bacterial infections in humans, animals, and plants to promote food safety; protect against potential bacteriological weapons; and prevent or mitigate the deleterious effects of bacterial contamination, degradation, and corrosion in the petroleum industry.
