Description

Phage research, after a fitful history during its first twenty years, had all but died out in the middle 1930's. In the text-books of bacteriology, the bacteriophages, if they were mentioned at all, figured as a curiosity item, unconnected with the rest and disposed of in a couple of pages at most. Today, phage research is vigorously pursued in many outstanding laboratories in this country, in France, and to a lesser extent in other countries. There are perhaps 100 people directly engaged in basic research. In addition, the field has become well known to many scientists in other fields: genetics, biochemistry, virology, immunology, to name the most important. Indeed, there is every reason for the popularity of phage research, and for the interest in its results on the part of other scientists. Phage research has become so interwoven with these other fields that it is quite difficult to extricate it from its entangling alliances, and to present it as a unit.
