Abstract

SUMMARY

The genome of a rod-shaped virus, , isolated from , has been examined. Electron microscopy and single strand-specific S nuclease digestion showed that the genome is a single-stranded circular molecule of 8.5 kilobases. Two replicative forms of DNA have been isolated, a supercoiled double-stranded circular molecule and a nicked form derived from it. A physical map of the replicative forms has been constructed.
