  1. The subcluster and cluster designation is given followed by the phage name. The founding phage for each cluster is in bold-italics. Hosts are the bacterial hosts on which the phages were isolated (not the host range) and are abbreviated as Bacillus anthracis (A), Bacillus cereus (C), Bacillus sp. (B), Bacillus clarkii (Bc), Bacillus megaterium (M), Bacillus pumilus (P), Bacillus subtilis (S), Bacillus thuringiensis (T), and Bacillus weihenstephanensis (W). ORFs are the number of Open Reading Frames predicted to be encoded by the genome as provided in the reported annotation. Family is Myoviridae (M), Siphoviridae (S) or Podoviridae (P). A reference (Ref) for the GenBank sequence is provided when available.
  2. *tRNA predicted in this study using Aragorn and DNAMaster.
  3. **Phage SI0phi is reported as an incomplete genome but is included in this analysis because it was complete enough to clearly assign it to a cluster.
