Complete Genome Sequences of Lambdoid Phages 21, 434, and 434B and Several Lambda Hybrids. Academic Article uri icon


  • Recombinational hybrids between phage and its relatives were instrumental in the beginnings of molecular biology. Here, we report the complete genome sequences of lambdoid phages 21 and 434 and three of their hybrids. In addition, we describe 434B, where the entire lysis gene region was replaced by cryptic prophage sequences.
