Isolation of E. coli phages from environmental water samples and analysis of their effect on periodic epidemics of cholera
(BRAC University, 2017-09)
Cholera is a deadly infectious disease caused by the pathogen Vibrio cholerae. In our country cholera epidemics occur seasonally. Two peaks of outbreaks nicely coincide with dry season and monsoon rain. Several factors ...
Isolation and characterization of Bacteriophages from surface water specific for Vibrio Cholerae
(Brac University, 2020-01)
The severe diarrheal disease cholera is caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholera. Toxigenic Vibrio cholerae strains belonging to O1 and O139 serogroups are the causative agents of epidemic and pandemic cholera. The Vibrio ...
Molecular assessment of bacteriophage genome as a potential therapeutic agent in treating multi-drug resistant bacterial infection
(Brac University, 2019-12)
Bacteriophage therapy sheds a fresh light upon the critical growth of antibiotic resistance. Antimicrobial resistance, one of the major public health concerns, requires a novel therapeutic strategy to be optimized. Phage ...
Isolation of Bacteriophages from surface water for some distinct bacterias and their characterization as potential biocontrol agents
(Brac University, 2020-12)
E. coli of many different kinds, most of which are part of the intestine's normal flora and are thought to be comparatively harmless. However, some strains have developed pathogenicity systems, which means they can cause ...
Isolation of Lytic Bacteriophages from Environmental water samples specific to Vibrio cholerae; software-based analysis of whole-genome using bioinformatics tools
(Brac University, 2020-08)
Vibrio cholerae is an opportunistic, gram-negative bacterium that is commonly found in fresh and saltwater, soil, food, or in the intestine of humans and animals. It is the most causative agent of cholera; a chronic diarrheal ...
