Complete Genome Sequence of Klebsiella pneumoniae Podophage Pylas Academic Article uri icon


  • Carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important opportunistic pathogen due to its drug resistance. This study reports on the isolation and characterization of a podophage, named Pylas, infecting this bacterium. The complete genome of phage Pylas is described, and it is distantly related to the well-studied phage N4.
