Data from: Phenotypic stochasticity prevents lytic bacteriophage population from extinction during bacterial stationary phase

Romain Gallet, Thomas Lenormand & Ing Nang Wang
It is generally thought that the adsorption rate of a bacteriophage correlates positively with fitness, but this view neglects that most phages rely only on exponentially growing bacteria for productive infections. Thus, phages must cope with the environmental stochasticity that is their hosts’ physiological states. If lysogeny is one alternative, it is unclear how strictly lytic phages can survive the host stationary phase. Three scenarios may explain their maintenance: (1) pseudolysogeny, (2) diversified or (3)...
