Complete Genome Sequence of Burkholderia cenocepacia Phage Magia. Academic Article uri icon


  • Burkholderia cenocepacia is a Gram-negative bacterium that is implicated in respiratory infections. The 44,942-bp genome of Magia, a phage infecting B. cenocepacia, does not appear to have strong overall similarity to other known phages. The Magia genome encodes a Cro-like transcriptional regulator, a C2-like immunity repressor, and an integrase, suggesting that it is a temperate phage.
