Discovery NotesPhage AltPhacts was isolated from moist soil collected at a depth of 15cm on 4/11/17 by Michael Murphy. Sample was collected from a dumping area for liquids in a urban area. Air temp at time of collection was 20C. AltPhacts was isolated by enrichment plating at 30C (10X 7H9/glycerol medium, CaCl2, AD Supplement, M. smeg).

Characterization ws performed by Team Bac & Bougie (Megan Satyadi, Kalin Patel, Courtney Lee, Steve Yoon) and Team Google Genome (Eric He, Joel Forcheney, Olivia Yang, Kevin Hakimi).
