Paenibacillus larvae is a pathogen of honeybees that causes American foulbrood (AFB). We isolated bacteriophages from soil containing bee debris collected near beehives in Utah. We announce five high-quality complete genome sequences, which represent the first completed genome sequences submitted to GenBank for any P. larvae bacteriophage.
V olume 1, no. 6, e00668-13, 2013. The species infected by the five bacteriophages was misidentified as Paenibacillus larvae. The article title should read as given above, and the organism identified as Paenibacillus larvae should be identified as Brevibacillus laterosporus throughout. Page 1: The abstract should read as follows. " Brevibacillus… (More)
Mycobacteriophages infect members of the Mycobacterium genus in the phylum Actinobacteria and exhibit remarkable diversity. Genome analysis groups the thousands of known mycobacteriophages into clusters, of which the B1 subcluster is currently the third most populous. We report the complete genome sequences of five additional members of the B1 subcluster.
