non SEA-PHAGES genomes

| posted 17 Apr, 2018 12:56
Cluster AR contains a phage that was not isolated and sequenced by the SEA-PHAGES program. Its finders annotated the genome differently. We do not curate, update, or QC this genome.

This phage is:

Hi Welkin - just curious, did you mean phage ArV1 from this paper? I couldn't find a phage called AvR1.
Some students are presenting the ArV1 paper for journal club. The AR cluster contractile tail on a Siphoviridae is very interesting…!

Hi! Yes, ArV1 is the phage of that paper. Why do you say that AR phages are siphoviridae?

Oh, interesting…We adopted DrYang from the Genome Exchange, and its PhagesDB page says it has Siphoviridae morphology (from the EM pic, I can see why - its tail looks somewhat long). But now I see that other AR phages are listed as Myoviridae.

Should I update the PhagesDB page for DrYang to list it as having Myoviridae morphology based on the rest of the cluster members?

That would be great!

Hi Debbie,

I can't update DrYang to be a Myoviridae in because it was not our phage originally, and it is asking me to input the GPS coordinates (which I don't know) as part of the change/update.
