Discovery NotesThe soil sample from where the phage was extracted was in between bushes by a student parking lot on the campus of University of the Sciences. It was close to water due to sprinklers by bushes. The ground was a mound shape and there were worms living in the soil. The foot traffic would be light due to the fact it was in between bushes, however the interesting part that one of the three bushes were dead.

Cluster identified following DOGEMS via PCR with cluster-specific primers.

Naming NotesThe phage was named BabytheFifth since it was during our fifth attempt that we finally obtained a phage. But, we love it all the same!
