Discovery NotesMy bacteriophage was found in the Food Forest at Florida Gulf Coast University. The soil was dry and sandy. My bacteriophage was both enriched and plated on the bacteria Gordonia terrae.
Naming NotesMy bacteriophage is named after the Greek Demigod Dardanus. Dardanus is the son of Zeus and Electra, and the grandson of Atlas according to Greek mythology. This name is meant to reflect my bacteriophage's power. I view my bacteriophage as powerful because it covered my entire plate at the beginning of a serial dilution series.

Plaque NotesMy phage came from a lyctic plaque inside a turbid plaque. When plated on gordonia terrae for a serial dillution series, small clear plaques developed, as well as large turbid plaques. The least amount of plaques found on a plate was 10 plaques. My plaques are large, however they vary in size. My plaques have a diameter of approximately 2-3.5 millimeters.
