In 2010, mycobacteriophage BQuat was directly isolated from soil collected on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. BQuat was identified to be a unique Siphoviridae that infects Mycobacterium smegmatis (mc2155). DNA extraction was performed and the DNA was sent to the McDonnell Genome Institute at Washington University for sequencing, making it ready for annotation. BQuat’s genome is 41893 bp in length and is a member of the G1 Cluster. Through analysis of BQuat’s genome, we assigned putative functions to BQuat proteins utilizing bioinformatic resources. BQuat’s ... Read more
