Abstract

We report here the complete genome sequence of a virulent Staphylococcus epidermidis siphophage, phage 6ec, isolated from the anterior nares of a human. This viral genome is 93,794 bp in length, with a 3' overhang cos site of 10 nucleotides, and it codes for 142 putative open reading frames.
