Mycobacterium phage Taralyn
Duplicate of Carcharodon
After Illumina sequencing, Taralyn's genome was found to be 100% identical to the genome of Carcharodon, a phage isolated by students at Jacksonville State University. This is interesting since these two were almost certainly independent isolates, and represents only the second instance we know of—as of Feb 2015—of 100% identical phages being isolated in two different geographical locations.
