Genome sequence of a cluster A13 mycobacteriophage detected in Mycobacterium phlei over a half century ago


A phage infecting Mycobacterium phlei was isolated in 1958 from a soil sample in Hungary. Some physicochemical and biological properties of the virus were described in independent studies over the years. Here, we report the genome sequence of this early mycobacteriophage isolate. The Phlei phage genome measured 50,418 bp, had a GC content of 60.1 % and was… (More)
