Complete Genome Sequence of Sin4, a Siphophage Infecting Carbapenemase-Producing Klebsiella pneumoniae Academic Article uri icon


  • Klebsiella pneumoniae is a commonly antibiotic-resistant human pathogen. This report describes the complete genome sequence and important features of Sin4, a siphophage infecting carbapenemase-producing K. pneumoniae By its genome size, predicted packaging mechanism, protein similarity, and classification given to its closest relatives, Sin4 was determined to be a T1-like phage.
