Bacteriophage genomes - data download

This page provides access to genomes sequenced at the Wellcome Sanger Institute.

We make all our sequence data available through the links below. The below list may include complete, ongoing and forthcoming sequencing projects.

The Sanger Institute Pathogen Genomics group is sequencing a number of bacteriophage from various sources. Sequence data for each project will be made available for download (FTP site) and searching (BLAST server) once assemblies have begun. The annotation will be made available upon publication.

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.
