bIL67 is a broad-host-range prolate-headed phage that is active against cells. The complete phage genome sequence of 22195 bp was established. Thirty-seven open reading frames (ORFs) organized in two clusters were identified. Functions were assigned to the putative products of six of the ORFs on the basis of comparison of the deduced amino acid sequences to known proteins, analysis of structural features of the proteins and search for conserved motifs. These were a DNA polymerase, a protein involved in recombination, a lysin, a terminase subunit, a structural protein and a holin.
