Phage Introns and the mobilome

Published by at 1:23 pm under Uncategorized

The SEA Phage members that isolated cluster J Phages all got together and published a paper in PLoS.

This is a great paper to read slowly over this semester as you learn more about phage genomes.

I think it is so interesting how they discovered 2 introns using the alignment tools and then confirmed their hypothesis by isolating and analyzing the predicted proteins.

They described a “luxuriant mobilome”….Maybe we will see something similar?
