Abstract

The isolation of a virus that infects the blue-green algae (Safferman and Morris, 1963, 1964, a,b) was looked upon with great interest by researchers in a number of fields. The driving force behind Safferman’s search for what we shall call the cyanophages was an interest in underlying factors responsible for algal degeneration. Motivated by an increased concern over eutrophication and associated algal blooms, ecologists thought that the cyanophages may exercise some control over behavioral patterns of algae in nature. Plant virologists looked to the cyanophages as a model system to help resolve discrepancies which had arisen in the study of virus-host interactions. Those interested in photosynthesis and blue-green algal metabolism saw the cyanophages as a potentially useful tool in their studies. Finally, researchers in many diverse disciplines realized that the discovery of the cyanophages opened up the possibility of transduction, whereby the viruses could be utilized in a multitude of genetic experiments.
