The genomes of 22 putative prophages (bifidoprophages), previously identified in bifidobacterial genomes, were analyzed to detect the presence and organization of functional modules. Bifidoprophages were shown to display a classical modular genomic organization in which the DNA lysogeny module and the DNA packaging regions are the most highly conserved. Furthermore, single phage gene as well as multiple phage gene-based phylogenetic analyses clearly revealed the chimeric make-up of the genomes of bifidoprophages.
