[…] 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 sequences with the vfdb (22) and dbeth (23) toxin databases using blastp (24). finally, no known antibiotic resistance genes were found in the genome […]
