Bacteriophage (phage) therapy is expected to become an alternative therapy for Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections. P. aeruginosa phage KPP23 is a newly isolated phage belonging to the family Siphoviridae and may be a therapeutic phage candidate. We report its complete genome, which comprises 62,774 bp of double-stranded DNA containing 95 open reading frames.
