Discovery NotesThe soil was under rose bushes that was near a Track and Field stadium. It was dry soil that was taken at surface level to 2 inches deep, and the soil was taken during a day that was 76 degrees Fahrenheit. There was also other vegetation such as moss around, as well as bushes.
Naming NotesThe name of this phage, GeraldActinOp, is a play on words on a "Actinophages." Besides being a a legendary bacteriophage, Gerald is always "acting up," because he is elusive, hard to find, and always up to no good. Gerald has been with me since the first direct isolation, and he is always on the move. GeraldActinUp represents all the phages that continue to move, act, and ultimately, change the world.
