In this study, an Escherichia coli virulent phage, SRT8, was isolated from sewage sludge samples collected from Jinan, Shandong Province, China. The genome of phage SRT8 consists of 49,579 bp with 47.83% G+C content. The phage genome contains 84 putative protein-coding genes, and no rRNA or tRNA genes. Comparative genomics analysis showed that the E. coli phage SRT8 is a member of a new species and belongs to the subfamily Tunavirinae, which includes T1-like phages.
