Research paper Anti-phage defense

Matthew C Johnson and colleagues have shown that Pseudomonas aeruginosa exhibits the greatest diversity of anti-phage systems among 30 species. They identified two core defense hotspot loci (cDHS1 and cDHS2) where many anti-phage immune systems are encoded. These regions could simplify immune system discovery and represent popular landing spots for mobile genetic elements carrying anti-phage systems.
