Citrobacter freundii is a Gram-negative, opportunistic pathogen that can be fatal to newborns or immunocompromised patients. Bacteriophages against this bacterium can be useful for therapeutic purposes. Here, we describe the complete genome and the key features of the pseudo T-even C. freundii bacteriophage Miller.
Citrobacter freundii and other Gram-negative opportunistic pathogens necessitate concern from the public health sector. Bacteriophages that kill such pathogens may be useful in the control and containment of these infections. Here, we describe the genome of a newly isolated T4-like myophage of C. freundii, Moon, and present its features.
Citrobacter freundii is an opportunistic pathogen that has been linked to nosocomial infections, such as brain abscesses and pneumonia. Further study on phages infecting C. freundii may provide therapeutics for these infections. Here, we announce the complete genome sequence of the FelixO1-like myophage Moogle and describe its features.
Salmonellosis, caused by Salmonella, is a leading cause of food poisoning worldwide. With the continuing rise of bacterial antibiotic resistance, efforts are focused on seeking new approaches for treatment of bacterial infections, namely, bacteriophage therapy. Here, we report the complete genome of S. Typhimurium siphophage Stitch.
Citrobacter freundii is an opportunistic pathogen responsible for many urinary tract infections acquired in hospitals and is thus a concern for public health. C. freundii phage Stevie might prove beneficial as a treatment against these infections. The complete genome of Stevie and its key features are described here.
Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis is a food-borne pathogen that causes salmonellosis in the United States. Bacteriophages are emerging as viable biocontrol agents against this pathogen. Here, we present the complete annotated genome sequence of Salmonella Enteritidis T4-like myophage Marshall, which has potential as a phage therapy agent.
