The phage vB_BthS-HD29phi infecting Bacillus thuringiensis strain HD29 was isolated and purified. The morphology of the phage showed that it belongs to the family Siphoviridae. The phage genome was 32,181 bp in length, comprised linear double-stranded DNA with an average G + C content of 34.9%, and exhibited low similarity to known phage genomes. Genomic and phylogenetic analysis revealed that vB_BthS-HD29phi is a novel phage. In total, 50 putative ORFs were predicted in the phage genome, and only 18 ORFs encoded proteins with known functions. This article reports the genome sequence of a new tailed phage and increases the known genetic diversity of tailed phages.

A novel Vibrio alginolyticus phage, VAP7, was isolated from seawater collected from Sanya, Hainan province, China. Whole-genome sequencing analysis revealed that phage VAP7 has a linear, double-strand...
The novel bacterial virus Mimir87, infecting the salt-tolerant bacterium Virgibacillus halotolerans, was isolated from worker honey bees. Mimir87 has an elongated head and a long non-contractile tail ...
This work describes the characterization and genome annotation of a new lytic phage, vB_EtaM_ET-ABTNL-9 (referred to as PETp9), isolated from waste water samples collected in Dalian, China, that can k...
The virulent bacteriophage MJG that specifically infects Aeromonas hydrophila was isolated from a water sample from a river in Harbin, China. The genome of phage MJG was a double-stranded linear DNA w...
A new macluravirus infecting Pinellia ternata in China was identified by high-throughput sequencing (HTS) and tentatively named "crow-dipper mosaic-associated virus" (CrdMV). The complete genome seque...
The central aim of this trial is to investigate the safety and tolerability of Phage Cocktail-SPK as an adjunct to standard therapy for the prevention and treatment of burns susceptible to...
This multi-center, outpatient study will extract and evaluate the presence of facial P. acnes bacteria and phage strains using pore strips on up to 400 human subjects.
This research is being done to see if whole genome sequencing (WGS) improves the diagnosis of patients in the NICU. Using WGS in this way, which is relatively new, researchers at Penn Stat...
Syphilis is an important sexually transmitted infection. There has been an epidemic of syphilis amongst men who have sex with men in the United Kingdom in the last decade. Early infection ...
Study LBx-1001 is a multi-center randomized, double-blind study to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of LBP-EC01 in patients with indwelling ...
A coordinated effort of researchers to map (CHROMOSOME MAPPING) and sequence (SEQUENCE ANALYSIS, DNA) the human GENOME.
Short tracts of DNA sequence that are used as landmarks in GENOME mapping. In most instances, 200 to 500 base pairs of sequence define a Sequence Tagged Site (STS) that is operationally unique in the human genome (i.e., can be specifically detected by the polymerase chain reaction in the presence of all other genomic sequences). The overwhelming advantage of STSs over mapping landmarks defined in other ways is that the means of testing for the presence of a particular STS can be completely described as information in a database.
Techniques to determine the entire sequence of the GENOME of an organism or individual.
The parts of a GENOME sequence that are involved with the different functions or properties of genomes as a whole as opposed to those of individual GENES.
Bacteriophages whose genetic material is RNA, which is single-stranded in all except the Pseudomonas phage phi 6 (BACTERIOPHAGE PHI 6). All RNA phages infect their host bacteria via the host's surface pili. Some frequently encountered RNA phages are: BF23, F2, R17, fr, PhiCb5, PhiCb12r, PhiCb8r, PhiCb23r, 7s, PP7, Q beta phage, MS2 phage, and BACTERIOPHAGE PHI 6.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
