Detailed Information for Phage Groupthink
Discovery Information
Isolation HostMycobacterium smegmatis mc²155
Found ByColleen Jackson
Year Found2015
Location FoundBowling Green, KY USA
Finding InstitutionWestern Kentucky University
ProgramScience Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Yes
Isolation Temperature37°C
GPS Coordinates36.9854 N, 86.45 W Map
Discovery NotesMy soil sample was gathered from rocky and fertilized ground between Western Kentucky University's two greenhouses. The soil had fertilizer from what was used within the greenhouse and thus likely had abnormally high levels of nutrients in comparison to other close locations. In addition, the location did not have much vegetation with the exception of crabgrass. The area also had smaller amount of sunlight due to the presence of the buildings and tree nearby. Temperature at time of sample was 37.5 degrees.
Naming NotesThe name is derived from the behavior of the phage. The Phage capsids were very attracted to each other during the electron microscopy, hence the name Groupthink.

Annotating InstitutionWestern Kentucky University
Annotation StatusIn GenBank
Plaque NotesThis was a very turbid plaque which could not be accurately depicted by pictures. This phage developed clear plague mutants after the population became "webby" on the plates. In addition the plagues sizes uniformly decreased as the plate became more populated.
MorphotypeSiphoviridae
Has been Phamerated?Yes
