We have presented a scientific poster at the 6th Xanthomonas Genomics Conference in Halle, Germany. Our poster provided information about comparative genomics of OP2-like bacteriophages. These bacteriophages can infect Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (XOO). XOO bacterium is the causative agent of bacterial blight of rice. It causes significant economic losses especially in Asia and in western part of Africa. There is no effective pesticide against it. Bacteriophages, viruses infecting bacteria, could provide an alternative tool against XOO.
