Figure 1

The organization of the bacteriophage 7 - 11 genome. Upon cell entry, the genome likely takes a circular form, so that the two gene clusters are divergently transcribed and separated by a long intergenic region which consists of 5' and 3' ends of the genome. The two genes with special importance in transcriptional regulation - σ and anti-sigma factor genes - are marked. The groups of genes involved in DNA replication and nucleotide metabolism are also marked.
