Discovery Information
Isolation HostMycobacterium smegmatis mc²155
Found ByLaura Krings and Jessica Kellerstrass
Year Found2013
Location FoundKenosha, WI United States
Finding InstitutionCarthage College
ProgramScience Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Yes
Isolation TemperatureNot entered
GPS Coordinates42.621111 N, 87.820556 W Map
Discovery NotesThe soil sample was taken from a flower garden outside of Tarble Hall on the Carthage College campus. The flower garden is located directly in front of Tarble's front doors. The soil sample was moist and compact, found in between flowering plants at a depth of approximately 3.8 cm. The temperature was 20 degrees C.
Naming NotesThe name Cerasum is the Latin word for 'cherry.' I selected Cerasum for the phages name because after seeing the phage on the electron microscope, I thought it looked like a cherry: containing a long tail (stem) and a circular capsid (cherry). Hence the name Cerasum.

Plaque NotesPhage has hazy plaques, leading to the conclusion that it is a temperate phage. Each plaque contains halos around them. The morphology of the plaques has three different sizes:
90% are 0.20 cm
5% are 0.12 cm
5% are 0.08 cm
MorphotypeSiphoviridae
