Bacteriophage genomes can be regarded as an ensemble of modules which are accessible to the whole phage population via recombination. The time spent by prophages in the bacterial host provides them with the opportunity to exchange modules with other prophages or infecting phages. Here we analyze the modular structure of a set of 457 phages and 760 prophages extracted from completely sequenced bacterial genomes using the ACLAME database and its associated tools. We identified 91 modules of… CONTINUE READING
