UFV P2 as a member of the Luz24likevirus genus: a new overview on comparative functional genome analyses of the LUZ24 like phages

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3890496
PMID: 24384011
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-15-7

[…] Pairwise genomic comparisons has been a useful approach for genotyping and classification of viruses like Circoviridae[] and Geminiviridae[]. The alignment of phages genomic sequences and pairwise comparisons revealed that vb_PaeP_p2-10_Or1, vb_PaeP_C1-14_Or, LUZ24, PaP4, PaP3, MR299-2 and tf are the phages most closely related to UFV-P2. Genom […]


Reconstructing the modular recombination history of Staphylococcus aureus phages

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3852002
PMID: 24564731
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-14-S15-S17

[…] h its integrase.In order to detect possible modular recombinations, it is necessary to know the position and variants of each module in a given set of phages. This knowledge is based on the notion of alignment of phages. […]
