Genome Property Definition Page

Nameprophage regions
DescriptionYES NO Nearly every completed prokaryotic genome shows regions derived, apparently, from the integration of a temperate phage. A region must be substantial in size, although ability to excise and package as a viable phage is not a requirement. This property refers to phage integrated into the host chromosome rather than self-replicating. Smaller, phage-like clusters such as pyocins that resemble phage tail regions do not count as prophage regions. Where possible, the number of identified phage regions should be given as well as the YES state.
