Discovery NotesThe sample was taken from downtown Dahlonega from under a large tree with soil in a flower box.
The soil was dark and had worms near the surface. The previous day it had rained. The soil stuck to itself.
The temperature on 8/29/17 was 71°F and the humidity was at 82%.
Naming NotesIt is named “Glutenfree” due to a gluten sensitivity that I have.

Plaque NotesThe bacteriophage “Glutenfree” contained clearings that were very small in diameter (1 millimeter in diameter). This most likely means that the absorption rate was high; typically phages with higher absorption rates produce smaller plaques. The pictures of Glutenfree indicate that it is a siphoviridae due to its long flexible tail. Phages with these long tails have a long tape measure gene, which codes for a protein that determines tail length.
