Discovery NotesIt was found in a mound of sand and silt on the bank of the Ouachita River on the campus of Ouachita Baptist University.
Naming NotesThis phage is named in honor of the first phage that my lab partner and I discovered. The first phage did not produce measureable plaques, nor did it produced a large quantity of plaques. We named it John the Bactist because after we first performed a spot test to see if any of our soil samples contained bacteriophages, we were told that we didn't have a phage. The next day in class, much to our surprise, we found out that we did in fact have a phage because there was a spot on the petri dish. We considered ourselves blessed with a phage that we were never supposed to have, much like Elizabeth and Zechariah in the Bible. Since we were unable to continue to work with this bacteriophage, but the name is completely awesome, we decided to keep the name for our second (hopefully more successful) phage.
