Abstract(s)[Abstract] Bacterial genomics has revealed substantial amounts of prophage DNA in bacterial genomes. This integrated viral DNA has been shown to play important roles in the evolution of bacterial pathogenicity. Acinetobacter baumannii has shown a fast progression as a nosocomial multi-resistant pathogen in recent years, and is now considered one of the most dangerous microorganisms in hospital environments. The role of prophages in the evolution of A. baumannii pathogenicity has not yet been explored. In this context, we aimed at evaluating the impact of prophages on A. baumannii genomic diversity and pathogenicity. [...]
