[…] and to map the pghp-like gene in its corresponding genomic sequence. presence and map position of prophage regions were determined by analyzing each genome/contig with the phage search tool (phast) web server [42] by using the genomic gi. potential co-localization of pghp-like genes within prophage regions was manually examined. gi and map position of pghp-like genes, gi of genomes […]

[…] share 5 spacers in crispr 3, while lmd-9 has only 8 spacers in this locus. the genome of smq-301 also encodes two type-i restriction-modification systems. although prophage genes were detected by phast (20), no complete prophage is present., no known toxins were identified in the coding sequence of s. thermophilus smq-301 by the web server virulencefinder (21) or by comparing the protein […]
