  1. Characteristics given are cluster assignment, number of subclusters (Sub.), number of phages in the cluster, host species from which the phages were isolated, the average genome size, average percent GC content, average number of ORFS with average number tRNA in parenthesis, and the morphotype. Averages are given with the standard deviation. Species abbreviations are Bacillus anthracis (A), Bacillus cereus (C), Bacillus sp. (B), Bacillus megaterium (M), Bacillus pumilus (P), Bacillus subtilis (S), Bacillus thuringiensis (T), and Bacillus westenstephanensis MG1, (W). Family/ Morphotype abbreviations are Tectiviridae (T), Podoviridae (P), Siphoviridae (S), and Myoviridae (M).
