Discovery NotesThe phage was isolated from a soil sample collected near a bush along the edge of the pond near the soccer field at LeTourneau University, in East Texas. A plastic spoon was used for digging the hole. Soil was dark, slightly sticky and wet. Weather was sunny with a clear sky, around 27ºC.
Naming NotesJackals are predators that hunt their preys. Similarly, our group spent the semester "hunting" and ultimately discovering a new phage, hence the name Jackal.
