    Cyanobacteria are important contributors to photosynthetic productivity in the open oceans. Functional photosystem II components are known to be encoded in cyanophage genomes and are suggested to provide a fitness advantage to the virus by boosting host performance. It is now shown that photosystem I components can also be detected in cyanophages.
