In recent years, the development of bioluminescence-based reporter #bacteriophages has revolutionized the monitoring of #microbes and their diseases. These reporter bacteriophages are genetically engineered to carry a gene that will be integrated into the host genome which will at one point reflect the fluorescence signals. #Bioluminescence reporter bacteriophages have high specificity and sensitivity, making them useful tools for studying microbes and their #diseases. They are also useful research tools that enable researchers to monitor the efficacy of bacteriophage/drug treatments, the spread of #infection, the success of phage delivery, and the activity of phage-resistant #bacteria. In this article, we provide an overview of bioluminescence reporter bacteriophages, describe their applications and advantages, and discuss how you can use them in your own research.

The phage therapy affects the microbiome by introducing new phages that can change the population of bacteria in a particular niche. The antibacterial potential of phages could be exploited by targeting the specific #pathogenic bacteria present in each individual's microbiome. Introducing new phages can also modify the gut microbiome through their effects on #bacterial populations, including their nutritional and immune functions. Bacteriophages have specified limited impact to the #micorbiome.
Many #people are getting a hard time finding phage #therapy services. #Phages can be offered as on-counter-ready prepared (in countries like #Georgia) or self-tailored (personalized/case oriented) products.
Filamentous phages have a huge surface bearing capacity and flexible genetic engineering property, thus, can easily be loaded with drugs and utilized for targeted drug delivery.
Bacteriophages can be applied to the food directly, their stability and efficiency in "cleaning up" the bacteria of the target in food can be outstanding
