PHIEC-2, A NEW GENERALIZED TRANSDUCING PHAGE OF ERWINIA CHRYSANTHEMI
A collection of Erwinia strains (chrysanthemi and carotovora<) was screened for temperature phages. One of them, O-slashed EC2, turned out to be a generalized transducing phage. The structure of its DNA was found to be 62 kb long, terminally redundant, and circularly permuted. The transducing properties of the phage are also briefly described.
