|Detailed Information for Phage Seppuku|
|Isolation Host||Mycobacterium smegmatis mc²155|
|Found By||Gilbert Onu|
|Location Found||Providence, RI United States|
|Finding Institution||Brown University|
|Program||Science Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science|
|From enriched soil sample?||Yes|
|Isolation Temperature||Not entered|
|Discovery Notes||From my professor's vegetable garden.|
|Naming Notes||During WWII, Japanese soldiers fought to the death, committing seppuku to avoid being captured alive and refusing to even risk revealing their secrets.|
My phage seemed especially resistant to revealing itself. A nanodrop test failed due to low titer, and plaques even disappeared during one series of plating.
In spite of this, I enjoyed the challenge of working with this phage, and with further work, it will surely lose the war.
