Coinfection of the same host cell by multiple viruses may lead to increased competition for limited cellular resources, thus reducing the fitness of an individual virus. Selection should favor viruses that can limit or prevent coinfection, and it is not surprising that many viruses have evolved mechanisms to do so. Here we explore whether coinfection is limited in the RNA bacteriophage phi6 that infects Pseudomonas phaseolicola. We estimated the limit to coinfection in phi6 by comparing the… CONTINUE READING
