Project context and summary :

Bacteriophage-bacteria interactions are key drivers of microbial populations. They are affected by phage satellites, which may facilitate, hinder or even block phage reproduction. These elements have been known for decades and shown to carry numerous defense systems, antibiotic resistance genes, and virulence factors. Yet, only recently it has become apparent that they are very diverse and numerous. Further understanding of their diversity and distribution has been hampered by the lack of a computational tool to identify them in genomes. `We developed SatelliteFinder, a modular and easily updatable tool to identify satellites in bacterial genomes automatically.
