Abstract Prophages are quiescent viruses that reside in the chromosomes of bacteria. In the human21 pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus, prophages are omnipresent and believed to be22 responsible for the spread of antibiotic resistance genes. Here, we demonstrate that release23 of phages from a subpopulation of .. [more]
