With recent advances in DNA sequencing, the possibility of characterizing different microbial environments is a reality. Most studies have shown how Eukaryotic and prokaryotic microorganisms co-exist and thrive in almost any environment; however, very few studies have focused on the viral component of such communities. This lack of studies is not due to lack of interest, rather by the lack of comprehensive genetic information in public databases from viral genomes. However, as more viral metagenomic projects are generated, the opportunity of mining those datasets with novel computational strategies constitute an important approach for further understanding of such diverse communities
