Also checking annotations for Bunnies and seeing missing starterator reports unavailable in Pecaan and on phagesdb for phams that are not orphams!

As an example - Bunnies gene 32 (immunity repressor) pham 56415 (pham number from phagesdb) report is missing

I have just returned from vacation and have updated the the starterator pages to the most recent version of the phamerator database which was posted this morning. I checked bunnies gene 32, it is now in pham 39047 and appears to be in sync across pecaan, starterator, and Checking phage Fulbright shows some discrepancies across the various platforms but that could be syncronization issues since the last update was posted so recently. I would give it a day and if reports are still missing please repost and I can look into it.
