DNA sequence of a region of the φX174 genome coding for a ribosome binding site

Abstract

The DNA region corresponding to a newly identified ribosome binding site in φX174 DNA is sequenced and mapped in relation to the physical map of φX174. Assignments of the binding site to a specific gene are discussed, and the possibility of a second case of overlapping genes in φX174 is considered.
