Abstract

Genetic diversity of T4-like bacteriophages was shown to be high in contiguous freshwater, marine and hypersaline biomes by the major capsid gene g23 sequencing. The biomes differed significantly in terms of g23 sequence diversity. The hypothesis of inter-biome invasions of T4-like bacteriophages is discussed.
