Abstract

A novel Ralstonia phage was isolated from soil in Egypt. It was designated Ralstonia phage RsoP1EGY using our phage identifier naming approach to reflect the phage's bacterial host species, characteristics and origin. When tested, this phage specifically infected only race 3 biovar 2 phylotype IIB sequevar 1, and not non-race 3 biovar 2 strains of Ralstonia solanacearum. The phage has an icosahedral capsid of 60 ± 5 nm in diameter with a short tail of 15 ± 5 nm in length, typical of a podovirus. The genome of RsoP1EGY is 41,297 bp in size, containing 50 open reading frames, with no significant sequence identity to any other reported R. solanacearum or non-Ralstonia phages, except to the recently deposited but unreported and unclassified Ralstonia phage DU_RP_I. RsoP1EGY is the first sequenced and characterized R. solanacearum phage isolated in Egypt.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 August 2018.
All research outputs
#3,944,096
of 13,376,849 outputs
Outputs from Archives of Virology
#513
of 3,001 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#101,192
of 270,754 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Archives of Virology
#14
of 83 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,376,849 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,001 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.8. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 270,754 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 83 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its contemporaries.
