Huge number of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) have been widely detected in phage genomes from anthropogenic environment or animal farms, whereas little is known about the dynamic changes of phage contribution to resistance under a feedlot wastewater treatment facility (WTF) pressure. Here, a metagenomics method was used to characterize the sewage phageome and identifies the antibiotic resistome. The results showed that the phage families of Siphoviridae, Myoviridae, and Podoviridae were always the most dominant. Read More
