Discovery NotesCollected in the soil in a suburb of Chicago. The soil had geraniums in it and had quite a few larger wood chips in it. It had rained a few days before I collected it. Collected on 8/20/2017.
Naming NotesNamed "Dyad" because during the purification stages, the phage kept showing lytic and lysogenic properties- there were clear and cloudy plaques on my plates. "Dyad" means two because this phage has dual plaque properties.
