Abstract

EFGrKN and EFGrNG are new Enterococcus faecalis phages that were isolated from sewage samples as part of the Israeli Phage Bank (IPB). The complete genomes were sequenced, analyzed, and deposited in GenBank. According to their lytic activity in vitro, it seems that these phages have a potential to be used in future phage therapy treatments.
