Finding InstitutionUniversity of Maryland, Baltimore County
ProgramScience Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Yes
Isolation Temperature28°C

Discovery NotesSoil sample was obtained from underneath a bin in an auto parts yard that contained defective or leaking car batteries.

It was theorized that due to S. mirabilis tolerance of heavy metals, phages which infect it could be found in an environment rich in heavy metals.

Weather was cloudy with a temperature of 26 C. The soil was black and moist with fine particles.
Naming NotesBecause this phage was discovered underneath a battery bin, it was decided to name it after a common battery brand.
