TWiV 434 Letters

Eric writes:

Dear Vincent et al.,

As a long-time fan of TWiV, it was a real delight to hear our work on “superspreader” phages profiled in a recent episode (TWiV 428: “Lyse globally, protect locally”).  Thank you for choosing to highlight our paper and, as usual, for superbly explaining the underlying science and its implications.  

With best regards,

Eric Keen
