Discovery NotesFound right in front of a sculpture of a penguin in an art garden. Using enriched isolation I obtained my plaque in small spread out clear spots.
Naming NotesI believed the sculpture was a chicken and needed a mascot for my phage, so I named it ChickenKing

Plaque NotesAs mentioned before, I began to discover a phage that created spread out clear spots that were very small. As isolation proceeded, the plaques became more concentrated and somehow created larger clear spots. After obtaining what looked like different phages on a single plaque, I performed serial dilutions of each plaque I thought was unique and used one webbed plate I obtained from one of the phages. THE PICTURE CHOSEN WAS MY WEBBED PLATE USED FOR EM. I DID NO
