Isolation HostGordonia terrae 3612
Found ByRafael Alexandre
Year Found2017
Location FoundPittsburgh, PA USA
Finding InstitutionUniversity of Pittsburgh
ProgramScience Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Unknown
Isolation Temperature30°C
