Here, we characterized the complete genome of the Siphoviridae BiggityBass, a lytic subcluster DR bacteriophage infecting Gordonia terrae CAG3. Its 63.2-kb genome contains 84 protein-coding genes, of which 40 could be assigned a putative function. BiggityBass is related most closely to AnClar and Yago84 with 90.61% and 90.52% nucleotide identity, respectively.
