Charlie Durant

PhD Candidate, Department of Genetics and Genome Biology, University of Leicester,

My PhD project will investigate bacteria and bacteriophages that inhabit ants and their nests.

Ants are thought to have evolved to cope with a high threat of disease by microorganisms, and bacteriophage - viruses that kill bacteria - might be important in this. With the rise of antibiotic resistance, bacteriophage are increasingly being considered as potential alternatives to antibiotics.
