Abstract

The complete genome of the novel phage vB_EcoS_PHB17, which infects Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli, was sequenced, revealing a linear double-stranded DNA genome of 48,939 bp with 46% GC content and protruding 150-bp 5' cohesive termini. The genome contained 85 open reading frames, 28 of which were annotated with known functions. No tRNA-encoding genes were detected. Phylogenetic analysis suggested that phage PHB17 is a novel phage of family Siphoviridae.
