Whole genome comparison of a large collection of mycobacteriophages reveals a continuum of phage genetic diversity
To understand the population structure of phages infecting a single host strain, 627 phages of Mycobacterium smegmatis were isolated, sequenced, and compared to reveal a continuum of genetic diversity, albeit with uneven representation of different phages. Expand
Tales of diversity: Genomic and morphological characteristics of forty-six Arthrobacter phages
The isolation and genomic characterization of 46 phages from environmental samples at various geographic locations in the U.S. are described, and Jasmine is the first sequenced podovirus of an actinobacterial host. Expand
Yeast hnRNP-related proteins contribute to the maintenance of telomeres.
It is found that deleting NPL3 accelerated the senescence of telomerase null cells, and the highly conserved RNA recognition motifs (RRM) in Npl3 appear to be important for preventing fastersenescence. Expand
