Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a predatory bacteria that attacks and kills other bacteria, including pathogens like Vibrio cholerae. I am studying the interaction between this predator and prey to better understand the genetic basis of the life cycle of B. bacteriovorus. We hope one day bacterial predators can be used as alternative antibiotics to treat infections.
