Discovery NotesI isolated this phage from a soil sample collected in a relatively low area on the Lincoln University campus, in the soil under a fir tree. The soil under the tree had only a small amount of moss on the surface, but was still quite moist due to the somewhat high humidity and shaded conditions under the tree. The taperature of the surrounding air was ~19*C, and the sky was mostly sunny.
Naming NotesA contraction of "boden" (meaning "soil") and "einwohner" (meaning "inhabitant" or "resident"). These two German words form a contraction which describes the origin of this bacteriophages. The fact that they are from German refers to the fact that Mycobacterium smegmatis, the host bacterium, was first isolated by Lustgarten. "17" refers to the year in which it was isolated.

Plaque NotesThe mean diameter of the plaques formed by this phage is ~2.6mm. Most of them have a smaller circle with a diameter of ~1.0mm in the center which is completely clear. Outside of this, there is a band of cloudy material, which starts near its inside border as being just as defined as the bacterial lawn on the rest of the plate outside the plaque, but which becomes almost completely clear towards the outside of the plaque. Here, a cleared ring is formed, sometimes directionally, with respect to the plaque as a whole. Additionally, there appears to be a lighter "halo" under the surface of the bacterial lawn/top agar for some of the plaques, which extends out ~2.0mm from each plaque. This could be caused by the infiltration of air under the surface of the top agar where the clearings had exposed this area to the air.
