Members of this subfamily infect Bacillus sp. including B. cereus, B. subtilis, B. thuringiensis, B. pumilis and B. megatherium. Genomes are of 146–167 kbp and have long terminal repeats.
Derivation of names
Bastillevirinae, Bastillevirus: from Bacillus phage Bastille
Genus demarcation criteria
The Bastillevirinae genera are well-supported monophyletic clades in genome-based phylogenies and in (concatenated) marker gene phylogenies. Members of the genera share at least 60% nucleotide identity across the genome length. The genome organisation is conserved. Members of the same genus generally infect members of the same bacterial genus.
