Mycobacteriophages are viruses that infect mycobacterial hosts. The current collection of sequenced mycobacteriophages-all isolated on a single host strain, Mycobacterium smegmatis mc(2)155, reveals substantial genetic diversity. The complete genome sequences of 63 newly isolated mycobacteriophages expand the resolution of our understanding of phage diversity.
