Discovery NotesThe soil sample was taken from a garden. While purifying our phage, we found that it had a very low titer (1.01x10^8 for low volume lysate, 3.22x10^8 for high volume lysate).
Naming NotesWe named our phage Bohemian because when we sent it off to be imaged under the Electron Microscope, the technician was only able to find a single phage on our grid, and almost gave up on finding it! However, they found our lone ranger, and the images of it came back very clear. It wanders around, killing mycobacterium smegmatis; a true bohemian.
