    Dana Willner
    San Diego State University, Department of Biology, San Diego, CA, USA
    Virulence 1:309-13. 2010
    ..Here, this finding is discussed further and its implications for the role of phage and the nature of phage-microbe interactions in the CF airway are explored...
  3. pmc Metagenomic detection of phage-encoded platelet-binding factors in the human oral cavity
    Dana Willner
    Department of Biology, San Diego State University, San Diego, CA 92182, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:4547-53. 2011
    ..Our results indicate that the oral cavity is a reservoir for pblA and pblB genes and for phage SM1 itself. Further studies will determine the association between pblA and pblB genes in the oral cavity and the risk of endocarditis...
  4. pmc Metagenomic analysis of respiratory tract DNA viral communities in cystic fibrosis and non-cystic fibrosis individuals
    Dana Willner
    Department of Biology, San Diego State University, San Diego, California, USA
    PLoS ONE 4:e7370. 2009
    ..These results have important clinical implications for CF, indicating that therapeutic measures may be more effective if used to change the respiratory environment, as opposed to shifting the taxonomic composition of resident microbiota...
