Genome Announc. 2015 Oct 15;3(5):e01178-15. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01178-15.


The Bacillus cereus group bacteriophage TsarBomba, a double-stranded DNA Myoviridae, was isolated from soil collected in Saratov, Russia. TsarBomba was found to be similar to Bacillus phages BCP78 and BCU4, and to have a wide host range among Bacillus cereus group species.
