Discovery NotesThe sample was found on Bouquet Street right outside of the Litchfield Towers at the University of Pittsburgh. The soil was very muddy, thick and clumpy when it was first collected. From my observations, moist soil seems to be the best source for the purpose of collecting these bacteriophages. It had been raining for the past 2 days when I had collected this sample.
Naming NotesThe name of my phage is meant to be a different version of saying "Hail to Pitt" or "H2P".

Plaque NotesThe plaques on my plates have been relatively small in size. They all have a clear middle with a less distinct ring around the edge that is slightly less clear, making it turbid. This cloudy ring around my plaque may go to show that this plaque is lysogenic rather than lytic. Lytic phages lyse the host cell while lysogenic phages incorporate a portion of their DNA into the host cell. My plaques appear to be smaller than many other plaques being found in my section of the course and they are consistently the same size.
