Complete Genome Sequence of Escherichia coli Siphophage Sciku. Academic Article uri icon


  • Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative bacterium that is found in humans and animals as both a commensal organism and a pathogen. This report describes the isolation of Sciku, a siphophage infecting E. coli 4s, with 73 protein-coding genes. Genome comparisons suggest that Sciku is related to phages within Guernseyvirinae.
