Bacteriophage Research is the medical research into the creation of the dreaded Bacteriophage infection. A Bacteriophage is a virus that reproduces within a bacterium. They live at the expense of the bacteria they inhabit, and in most cases eventually kill their bacterial hosts (essentially by eating them). Due to the reverse transriptase of the virus, the Bacteriophage rewrites the DNA structure of an organism in order for that structure to continue to produce the Bacteriophage. Normal anti-viral serums are in-effective against the Bacteriophage.
