Bacteriophage Data

The Sanger Institute Pathogen Genomics group sequenced a number of bacteriophage from various sources. Sequence data for each project was made available for download (FTP site) and searching (BLAST server). The annotation was made available on publication.

Phage Source Size Lifestyle Status Data
CR1 Serratia marcenscens 169 kb lytic In shotgun Sequence
OT8 Citrobacter rodentium ~200 kb lytic Halted
Vi typing phage E1 Salmonella typhi 45 kb lytic Published Sequence
EC24b Escherichia coli 57 kb lysogenic Finished Sequence
CP220 Campylobacter jejuni 178 kb lytic Finished Sequence

In collaboration with Gordon Dougan (Sanger Institute), George Salmond (Cambridge University), Prof. Ian Connerton (University of Nottingham) and members of the broader phage biology community.

Data use

This sequencing centre plans on publishing the completed and annotated sequences in a peer-reviewed journal as soon as possible. Permission of the principal investigator should be obtained before publishing analyses of the sequence/open reading frames/genes on a chromosome or genome scale. See our data sharing policy.
