ErnieJ, a cluster C mycobacteriophage that infects Mycobacterium smegmatis mc(2)155, was recovered from soil in Washington, DC. Its genome is 153,243 bp in size and encodes 227 predicted proteins, 30 tRNAs, and one transfer-messenger RNA (tmRNA). Ten percent of the predicted proteins have homologs in phages that infect nonmycobacterial Actinobacteria.
