Complete Genome Sequence of Gordonia rubripertincta Bacteriophage Hexbug Suggests Potential for a New CT Subcluster

Gavin, Hannah


  • Through the SEA-PHAGES program at Tufts University, a bacteriophage infecting Gordonia rubripertincta NRRL B-16540 was isolated and characterized. Hexbug is a lytic phage and is currently one of 44 phages belonging to cluster CT. The Hexbug genome shares .96% nucleotide identity with cluster CT phage Orla.
