Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The first volume of the Special Issue “Phage Therapy to Control Pathogenic Bacteria” was published in 2021. It is a successful Issue with ten published papers and has encouraged us to open a second volume with the same topic.

As a continuation of the Special Issue published in 2021, this second volume will also deliver an invaluable compendium of the latest approaches and challenges associated with the development of phage therapy. Topics may include but are not limited to recent advances in bacteriophage research for bacterial disease control in different areas (veterinary medicine, food industry, agriculture, aquaculture, and human medicine).
