Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Mar 28;8(13):e01594-18. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01594-18.


Mycobacteriophage Ryadel is a newly isolated cluster O Siphoviridae bacteriophage, characterized by an unusual prolate capsid, containing a 72,658-base-pair double-stranded DNA genome with 132 predicted protein-coding genes. Conserved among cluster O bacteriophages, the Ryadel genome contains 31 copies of a unique 17-bp sequence with dyad symmetry.
