  • Cyanophages (viruses which infect cyanobacteria) are abundant in the marine environment and are thought to be a significant factor in determining the dynamics of Synechococcus spp. populations. In an effort to use molecular techniques to characterise cyanophage populations, we designed cyanophage-specific (CPS) PCR primers based on a gene found in three genetically distinct marine cyanophages (Fuller et al., 1998). CPS primers were used to amplify cyanophage DNA extracted from viral communities… CONTINUE READING
