vB_BmeM-Goe8 is a phage preying on Bacillus megaterium. Its genome has a GC content of 38.9%, is 161,583 bp in size, and has defined ends consisting of 7436-bp-long terminal repeats. It harbours 11 genes encoding tRNAs and 246 coding DNA sequences, 66 of which were annotated. The particle reveals Myoviridae morphology, and the formation of a double baseplate upon tail sheath contraction indicates morphological relatedness to the group of SPO1-like phages. BLASTn comparison against the NCBI non-redundant nucleotide database revealed that Bacillus phage Mater is the closest relative of vB_BmeM-Goe8.
