Abstract

Bacteriophage UAE_MI-01 is an Escherichia coli O157:H7 phage that was isolated from the feces of wild pigeons (Columba livia domestica) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. All previously reported E. coli O157:H7 phages were isolated from ruminants. Here, we report the genetic features of this phage based on its complete genome sequence. UAE_MI-01 has the potential to be used as a therapeutic agent and as an industrial food preservative.
