Genome Announcements Collection 1: Ciliovirus, Brinovirus; Marine RNA Viruses SF-1, SF-2, SF-3; Leviviridae RNA Phages EC and MB
Alexander L. Greninger, Joseph L. DeRisiGenome Announcements, 2015Abstract:
1) We report the draft genome sequences of ciliovirus and brinovirus, two members of a likely new family of RNA viruses assembled
from San Francisco wastewater. Based on sequence alignments and a nonuniversal genetic code, we believe these to be the
first described RNA viruses of ciliates; however, more work is necessary to confirm their host.
2) We report the draft genome sequences of marine RNA viruses SF-1, SF-2, and SF-3, which were assembled from metagenomic
sequencing of organisms in San Francisco wastewater. These viruses were most closely related to marine RNA virus JP-B and
3) We report here the draft genome sequences of marine RNA phages EC and MB assembled from metagenomic sequencing of organisms
in San Francisco wastewater. These phages showed moderate translated amino acid identity to other enterobacteria
phages and appear to constitute novel members of the Leviviridae family.
