Abstract

The entire double-stranded DNA genome of the Streptomyces venezuelae bacteriophage VWB was sequenced and analyzed. Its size is 49,220 bp with an overall molar G + C content of 71.2 mol%. Sixty-one potential open reading frames were identified and annotated using several complementary bioinformatics tools. Clusters of functionally related putative genes were defined, supporting a refined version of the modular theory of phage evolution.
