Discovery NotesWe adopted our phage from our classmate Katie Davis. Soil was collected on 08/28/2022, the soil was taken from the top layer of the ground, it was dry, it was collected at 8:35 am when it was 88 degrees Fahrenheit out.
Naming NotesWe decided to name our phage FinalGirl as it is the final phage, we ended up studying and in scary movies there is always the final girl who makes it out alive-our phage is the final phage that made it to be studied. It was also scary studying it.

Plaque NotesOur phage's plaques are typically 2mm in diameter. They tend to be pretty clear with a little tint of fogginess. They are also typically not super round and have a bumpy appearance.
