Lessons from bacteriophages part 1: Deriving utility from protein structure, function, and evolution

In their Pearls article Dr. Carolyn M. Teschke and Dr. Kunica Asija discuss additional discoveries derived from studies of phages. They provide a historical introduction to research using phages. Also in part one of a series of Pearls articles, they offer insights from phage capsid protein structures and assembly. They also touch on phages and vaccines. Finally, they provide insights based on phage tail machinery.
