Cell-free production of therapeutic bacteriophages

Work initiated during the iGEM project Phactory (2018) has now resulted in a publication on the cell-free production of bacteriophages against multidrug-resistent bacteria. The work was performed by Quirin and Kilian from the original team and Gil Westmeyer (TUM Chemistry/Helmholtz) led the research.
