The temperate phage EFC-1 was newly isolated from a mitomycin-C-induced lysate of Enterococcus faecalis KBL101. EFC-1 has an isometric head and a long tail. The phage belongs to the family Siphoviridae according to its genomic structure and morphology. The phage EFC-1 has 40,286 base pairs of double-stranded DNA and a G+C content of 35.05 %. Bioinformatic analysis of the phage revealed 60 putative open reading frames (ORFs). The genome of the temperate phage EFC-1 was not significantly similar to that of previously reported bacteriophages from E. faecalis.
