Bacteriophage MS2 RNA is 3,569 nucleotides long. The nucleotide sequence has been established for the third and last gene, which codes for the replicase protein. A secondary structure model has also been proposed. Biological properties, such as ribosome binding and codon interactions can now be discussed on a molecular basis. As the sequences for the other regions of this RNA have been published already, the complete, primary chemical structure of a viral genome has now been established. 
Nucleotide sequence of bacteriophage φX174 DNA
TLDR
The sequence identifies many of the features responsible for the production of the proteins of the nine known genes of the organism, including initiation and termination sites for the proteins and RNAs.
The three-dimensional structures of two complexes between recombinant MS2 capsids and RNA operator fragments reveal sequence-specific protein-RNA interactions.
TLDR
Crystal structures of two complexes between recombinant MS2 capsids and RNA operator fragments have been determined at 2.7 A resolution using chemically synthesized variants of the stem-loop fragment and soaked them into crystals of recombinant capsids.
Secondary structure of RNA from bacteriophages f2 Qbeta, and PP7
TLDR
Electron microscopy of RNA-protein monolayers prepared under partial denaturing conditions has been used to compare the secondary structure of coliphage f2 and Qbeta and Pseudomonas aeruginosa phage PP7 RNAs, finding the greater amount of large base-paired structure is not related to an increased guanine-plus-cytosine content of PP7 RNA.

Nucleotide Sequence from the Coat Protein Cistron of R17 Bacteriophage RNA
The sequence of fifty-seven nucleotides in the coat protein cistron of phage R17 RNA directly confirms the genetic code, shows that the code used by the phage is degenerate and suggests that highly
Nucleotide Sequence of the Gene Coding for the Bacteriophage MS2 Coat Protein
By characterization of fragments, isolated from a nuclease digest of MS2 RNA, the entire nucleotide sequence of the coat gene was established. A “flower”-like model is proposed for the secondary
Nucleotide Sequence from the Polypeptide Chain Termination Region of the Coat Protein Cistron in Bacteriophage R17 RNA
The nucleotide sequence of a fragment of R17 RNA, which corresponds to the last six amino-acids of the bacteriophage coat protein, and extends on the 3′ side of the coat protein cistron for
Polypeptide Chain Initiation: Nucleotide Sequences of the Three Ribosomal Binding Sites in Bacteriophage R17 RNA
The initiator regions of the three cistrons of R17 bacteriophage RNA have been isolated and sequenced. All three regions contain a UGA triplet as well as the expected AUG and two contain the sequence
Nucleotide sequences of similar size from the coliphage R17 genome.
TLDR
A sequence of 33 nucleotides from the coliphage R17 RNA genome was determined and hairpin'-like secondary structures are proposed for the longer fragments, one of which appears to have a tetranucleotide excised in the loop region.
A-Protein gene of bacteriophage MS2
The nucleotide sequence of the A-protein gene of bacteriophage MS2 has been determined and a model for its secondary structure is proposed. Also the amino acid sequence of the A-protein has been
