Abstract Three Bacillus anthracis bacteriophages from Iowa topsoil are characterized as to latent period, morphology, structural proteins, DNA size, and restriction endonuclease digestion. Electron micrographs indicate that the three isolates include two members of the Myoviridae and one smaller phage belonging to the Podoviridae. Phages Nk and DB resemble Myoviridae phage SP50 in morphology, but host range studies, protein, and DNA analysis indicate that both differ from SP50. Phage MH is very similar to phage phi 29, but differs in terms of host range, structural protein, and DNA characteristics.
