Discovery NotesThe soil was full of sticks and pebbles. The sample in question was collected from under some leaves at the base of a tree across the street from the UNH Manchester campus.
Naming NotesIn one of the early days of my class' phage discovery journey, we were working on our first serial dilution, which includes doing a "Meet and Greet" with host bacteria. I was having trouble getting the bacteria to move up the tube and hit the serial dilution sample on the wall of said tube and said "Come on, go hug your dear Aunt Sally, she misses you." After asking what in the world I was talking about, one of my labmates said that I had to name my phage "Aunt Sally" if what I was plating that day turned out to be a viable phage. It was not, but I liked the name enough to use it for my next samples, and here we are. Funnily enough, I actually don't have an Aunt Sally.
