hello, I have read this article : https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/655910v2.full which mentioned a human gut virome database for 13000 virus 96% of which are bacteriophages.

I need some tools, methods or databases that do virus-host (bacteria) linkage. Can someone give me a clue? Thanks in advance

I'm not sure what you are exactly asking. But if you want to find phages within a bacterial genome, I know that PhiSpy is one of the best tools out there for it. You won't depend on homology to get it done - It uses random forest and Shannon-entropy (and other things) instead.

If you really need a database and insist on a homology approach, I know about this one which limits itself to only to phages that infect bacterial hosts within the phylum Actinobacteria.
