two integrases

Cluster CY phages are very plastic in the middle of the genome, near the integration cassette. Some contain two integrase genes in this region.

PECAAN only allows Y-int or S-int integrase choices. Are they both Y-int?

Hi Chris,
It depends on the phage. We've had phages with all possible assortments.
