- ... Bacterial viruses (phages) influence global biogeochemical cycles by modulating bacterial mortality, metabolic output and evolution. However, our understanding of phage infections is limited by few methods and environmentally relevant model systems. Prior work showed that Cellulophaga baltica phage ϕ38:1 infects its original host lytically, and an alternative host either delayed lytically or lysog ...
