Tripartite species interaction: eukaryotic hosts suffer more from phage susceptible than from phage resistant bacteria

Scientists investigated the extent to which a bacterium’s susceptibility or resistance to prophages alters its own effect as a pathogen, finding that bacteria that were more likely to take in phages were also more harmful to their eukaryotic host organism. Whole genome sequencing was performed with PacBio, and BluePippin was used to prepare 10 Kb libraries.
