EN Understanding phage-host relationships is crucial for the study of virus biology and the application of phages in biotechnology and medicine. However, information concerning the range of hosts for bacterial and archaeal viruses is scattered across numerous databases and is difficult to obtain. Therefore, here we present PHD (Phage & Host Daily), a web application that offers a comprehensive, up-to-date catalog of known phage-host associations that allows users to select viruses targeting specific bacterial and archaeal taxa of interest. Our service combines the latest information on virus- host interactions from seven source databases with current taxonomic classification retrieved directly from the groups and institutions responsible for its maintenance. The web application also provides summary statistics on host and virus diversity, their pairwise interactions, and the host range of deposited phages. PHD is updated daily and available at or
