Genomic Sequence of Mycobacteriophage OKCentral2016

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5824014
PMID: 29472341
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.01208-17

[…] 155, and OKCentral2016 were similar, at 67.4% and 65.1%, respectively (). OKCentral2016 was shown to align most with two other A10 subcluster phages, Chupacabra and Goose, by using a BLASTn search on with an expected value of 0.0 and a minimum identity value of 99%. OKCentral2016 shared a strong syntenic region coding for lysin A, lysin B, terminase, portal, capsid maturation protease […]


Complete Genome Sequence of Cluster J Mycobacteriophage Superphikiman

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5794948
PMID: 29437101
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.01538-17

[…] an average coverage of 335×. The genome was then annotated using the following databases and software: DNA Master (, Glimmer (), GeneMark (), Starterator, Phamerator (),, NCBI BLAST and Conserved Domain Database at NCBI (, ), HHPRED (), ARAGORN (), tRNAscan-SE (), and PECAAN ( is a member of actinobacteriophage clu […]


An inclusive Research Education Community (iREC): Impact of the SEA PHAGES program on research outcomes and student learning

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A
PMCID: 5754813
PMID: 29208718
DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1718188115

[…] , Science Education Alliance faculty teams contribute to quality control of both sequence data and genome annotation (). Two databases facilitate coordination of the scientific and programmatic data ( and, respectively).Because of the potential complexity of SEA-PHAGES, we used systems-level methods (, ) to construct a detailed pathway map ( and ) that relates pro […]


Complete Genome Sequence of Klebsiella pneumoniae Phages SopranoGao, MezzoGao, and AltoGao

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5679790
PMID: 29122857
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.01009-17

[…] . Therefore, regions upstream of the terminases were chosen as the canonical start sites for these genomes. All genes were predicted using Glimmer and GeneMarkS and corrected using DNA Master ( of the SopranoGao, MezzoGao, and AltoGao genomes found 77, 77, and 53 open reading frames, respectively, and G+C contents of 57.26%, 50.97%, and 53.29%, respectively. […]


Complete Genome Sequences of Cluster A Mycobacteriophages BobSwaget, Fred313, KADY, Lokk, MyraDee, Stagni, and StepMih

Genome Announc
PMCID: 5658500
PMID: 29074662
DOI: 10.1128/genomeA.01182-17

[…] notated using DNA Master (, Glimmer (), GeneMark (), Starterator, Phamerator (), HHPRED (), BLASTp searches against the NCBI nonredundant and actinobacteriophage ( databases (, ), Aragorn (), tRNAscanSE (), and PECAAN ( Phage features are listed in .All of the genomes are approximately 50 kb long and have nucleotide sequ […]


Broad range lytic bacteriophages that kill Staphylococcus aureus local field strains

PLoS One
PMCID: 5526547
PMID: 28742812
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0181671

[…] genomes sequences, resulting in an average of 999-fold coverage. The hypothetical open reading frames (ORF) present in the phage genomes were predicted by using GeneMark program [], DNAMaster ( and RAST [] and were manually curated. Protein similarity was evaluated with BLASTP. Structural predictions and motif searches were done with Pfam and InterProScan [,]. ARNold […]
