New Viruses related to eyes and ears have discovered

New UMBC-led research which was conducted in Frontiers in Microbiology say that viruses are taking  information from their environment to make plans

An ability to add another layer of complexity to the viral-host interaction in the environment

The phage can infect their hosts when the bacterial cells have special appendages, called pili and flagella, that assist bacteria to move and mate

There are many appendage-dependent phages that have different  patterns in their DNA

The Genomic analysis that these binding sites were not unique to a single phage, or even a single group of phages

The various kinds of phages had CtrA binding sites however they all required their hosts to have pili and or flagella to infect them

Caulobacterales are a studied group of bacteria, because they exist in two forms: a swarmer form that swims around freely, and a stalked form that attaches to a surface
