The precise and rational manipulation of the gut microbiome may enable new therapies for gut health and disease. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Hsu et al. (2019) reveal that bacteriophage predation reduces target bacteria and results in cascading interactions that alter non-target species and the gut metabolome.
