Discovery NotesThe environmental sample was collected at the Exposition Park Rose Garden near the University of Southern California. The soil was brown, crusty, and slightly damp.
Naming NotesThe name "Diapollos" comes from the combination of the greek word diaphorá, meaning "different", and the greek word polús, meaning "many". The reason the phage is characterized as different and many is because of its unusually high proliferation levels and different life cycle times.

Plaque NotesThe plaque morphology of the phage Diapollos is interesting - after four rounds of purification, the plaques all had clonal morphologies except for size. We suspect that it could be something intrinsic to Diapollos, perhaps due to its different infection timings. Diapollos' plaques are clear and their sizes are either small, medium, or large.
