Phages are the most abundant biological entities on Earth and are central players in the evolution of their bacterial hosts and the emergence of new pathogens. In addition, they bear an enormous potential for the development of new drugs, therapies or nanotechnologies. As a result, interest in phages is reviving. In the genomic era, our perspective on the phage sequence space remains incredibly sparse. The modular and combinatorial structure of phage genomes is largely documented. It is… CONTINUE READING
