SEA Phages

The Mycobacteriophage, NoodleTree, was discovered in 2016 from soil near the main fountain on the Spring Creek Campus of Collin College in Plano, TX. After isolation, amplification and imaging, it was found to be a unique Myoviridae bacteriophage that infects Mycobacterium smegmatis (mc2155). After DNA extraction, the DNA was sequenced by a team at the Pittsburgh Bacteriophage Institute, and genomic data was made available for annotation. The phage genome has a length of over 150 kbp and is a member of the C1 phage cluster. Upon analysis of the phage genome using DNA Master and its ... Read more

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
