Designer Phages
A major biotech field during the later Information and early Interplanetary periods. They are designer viruses that infect bacteria. The main use was to remove prokaryote biobots or infectious bacteria, but they could also be used for reprogramming biobots. Some biobots actually acted as factories for phages, and could be used to quickly produce large amounts of them.
