  1. aViromes were concentrated and purified using different protocols as described by Hurwitz et al. [26].
  2. bCarbon metabolism genes (see Additional file 5: Table S3) were detected in viral and microbial metagenomes derived from the same water sample taken from Scripps Pier in San Diego, CA in April 2009.
  3. cCarbon metabolism genes were considered to be detected if they had more than 5 normalized read hits.
