Discovery NotesBamboo growing in Arizona State University is kept in a shady and waterlogged area. A sample was taken from the surface of the soil since a warm, wet and shaded environment might support bacterial growth.

We are no longer certain that this phage infects A. globiformis. We will update the entry once the bacteria species is known.
Naming NotesThe Roman virtue auctoritas means "authority" when translated quite literally from Latin. However, it had much more significance to the Romans. It is a sense of one's social standing, built up through experience, pietas (faith) and industria (work, toil, productiveness). There's no better virtue to represent this phage.
Sequencing Information
Sequencing Complete?No
Genome length (bp)Unknown
Character of genome endsUnknown
Fasta file available?No
Lysogeny NotesSince the plaques are very clear, this phage seems to be in a lytic cycle, unlike lysogenic phage that tend to have more opaque plaques.
Annotating InstitutionUnknown or unassigned
Annotation StatusNot sequenced
Plaque NotesThe plaques vary in size, but they are always very clear. There is a small dot in the center of the plaque that is far clearer than the surroundings.
