Abstract

In this study, we isolated a novel virulent Escherichia phage, SRT7. Its genome is a double-stranded linear DNA molecule containing 39,883 bp. Direct terminal repeats with a length of 175 bp, are present at both ends of the genome. The G+C content is 50.54%. Forty-seven putative protein coding genes were identified. No tRNA or rRNA genes were identified. Comparative genomic analysis revealed that phage SRT7 is a novel member of the T7-like phage cluster, but it forms a singleton subcluster.

Bacteriophage: Phage Therapy

Phage therapy uses bacterial viruses (bacteriophages) to treat bacterial infections and is widely being recognized as an alternative to antibiotics. Here is the latest research.
