Abstract

A Vibrio sp. lytic phage VH7D was isolated from seawater of an abalone farm in Xiamen, China. The phage was capable of lysing Vibrio rotiferianus DSM 17186(T) and Vibrio harveyi DSM 19623(T). The complete genome of this phage consists of 246,964 nucleotides with a GC content of 41.31%, which characterized it as a giant vibriophage. Here we report the complete genome sequence and major findings from the genomic annotation.
