Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract We have been isolating a number of environmental phages for Photorhabdus as very few studies of this kind have been carried out previously. We have isolated a phage family that is able to infect Photorhabdus. These form the basis of this study.
Description We have been isolating a number of environmental phages for Photorhabdus so that we could screen for the ability to activate the TA system (and thus suffer abortive infection). There is very little indeed on phages of Photorhabdus in the literature so we decided it would be good to try to find some .. [more]
