Discovery NotesDormbaby phage was collected from a soil sample at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington at coordinates 47.667872 N, -117.403315 W. This location is located in front of the College Hall building at Gonzaga University. The soil used for our sample was collected from a patch of grass lawn, directly adjacent to ventilation containers. The area from which we collected our sample was clear from trees or other large vegetation.
Naming NotesThe name "Dormbaby" originates from how we would complete Biology Lab assignments together in the freshman dormitories. Furthermore, we added the term 'baby' because we felt a sense of ownership over our phage, as we spent the second semester of our Freshman year studying this phage sample.

Plaque NotesWhen studying plaque assay samples of our phage collected on plates, we found that our phage species formed clusters of colonies. Each individual plaque was about 1-2 mm in diameter. The plaques on the plates were also halo shaped, with clear rings and opaque centers. However, we do not have a picture of our plates.
