Whole-genome sequence of phage-resistant strain Escherichia coli DH5a.

Authors: Chen, Jingchao and Li, Yi and Zhang, Kun and Wang, Hailei

The genomes of many strains of Escherichia coli have been sequenced, as this organism is a classic model bacterium. Here, we report the genome sequence of Escherichia coli DH5a, which is resistant to a T4 bacteriophage (CCTCC AB 2015375), while its other homologous E. coli strains, such as E. coli BL21, DH10B, and MG1655, are not resistant to phage invasions. Thus, understanding of the genome of the DH5a strain, along with comparative analysis of its genome sequence along with other sequences of E. coli strains, may help to reveal the bacteriophage resistance mechanism of E. coli.
