Mycobacterium phage Goldstein
Duplicate of Velveteen
After Ion Torrent sequencing at the University of Pittsburgh, it was discovered that this phage was 100% identical to Velveteen. Since both were present in the Phage Hunter lab at the University of Pittsburgh around the same time, it appears that Goldstein was a lab contaminant of Velveteen.
