Abstract

Bacillus cereus is a ubiquitous, spore-forming bacterium associated with food poisoning cases. To develop an efficient biocontrol agent against B. cereus, we isolated lytic phage PBC1 and sequenced its genome. PBC1 showed a very low degree of homology to previously reported phages, implying that it is novel. Here we report the complete genome sequence of PBC1 and describe major findings from our analysis.
