Complete genome sequence of the cyanophage S-PRM1 isolated from Singapore coastal waters
Reference: Marine Genomics (2018) 43: 58-60

Here, we report the genomic sequence and comparative analysis of the cyanophage S-PRM1 which was recently isolated from Singapore coastal waters using Synechococcus sp. strain WH7803. The genome of 144,311?bp was sequenced using a combination of Illumina and Oxford Nanopore technologies. The calculated OrthoANI (Average Nucleotide Identity by Orthology) values of S-PRM1 were between 65.24% and 89.39% when compared with previously sequenced cyanomyoviruses with the highest identity with cyanophage S-CAM9. Auxiliary metabolic genes (AMGs) involved in photosynthesis, carbon metabolism, phosphate acquisition, DNA biosynthesis were found in the genome of S-PRM1.
