Complete Genome Sequence of Shelby, a Siphophage Infecting Carbapenemase-Producing Klebsiella pneumoniae Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae, a bacterium of the family Enterobacteriaceae, is a high-priority antibiotic-resistant pathogen that causes nosocomial infections. Here, we describe the isolation and annotation of the K. pneumoniae siphophage Shelby, a T1-like siphophage encoding 78 proteins, of which 34 have a predicted function.
