From enriched soil sample?No
Isolation Temperature28°C

Discovery NotesThe soil from which the phage was isolated was brown and clumpy, located under a rose bush in front of the UMBC dining hall (aka D-Hall). The weather was humid and warm at time of collection.
Naming NotesOur phage demonstrates a temperature-related gradient in plaque formation when grown on incubated plates; the name "IceyHot" humorously marks this unique trait.

Plaque NotesPlaques of the phage grew very slowly, often only appearing after 72 hours in the incubator. Plaques were circular and small, with a diameter of approx. 1 mm. Plaques were very turbid; if the phage lysed a plate out, the plate would often still appear "cloudy" with clearer plaques within as more phages lysed bacteria.
