Genome sequencing is of enormous importance for classification of prokaryote viruses and for understanding the evolution of these viruses. This survey covers 284 sequenced viruses for which a full description has been published and for which the morphology is known. This corresponds to 219 (4%) of tailed and 75 (36%) of tailless viruses of prokaryotes. The number of sequenced tailless viruses almost doubles if viruses of unknown morphology are counted. The sequences are from representatives of… CONTINUE READING
