Discovery NotesThe soil sample was sourced in a townhome complex in Harrisonburg, VA. It was found near a bush and other shrubbery, so there was potential for that to have an affect on the soil around it. It was dense and hard packed, almost like small rocks, however it dissolved once shaken around in the lab.
Naming NotesThe inspiration I took for my phage name is from the French naval officer, Jacque Cousteau.

Plaque NotesThe plaques produced by the virus Jacque were erratic and volatile. They easily were contaminated or somehow not cultivated properly. The best plate I had had 3 groupings of plaques, close enough to be uncountable, and 2 isolated plaques in another section. The 2 main clusters measured 3 and 3.5 mm across, the 2 individual plaques measured 2 and .5 mm across. They had similar shapes but of varying sizes. All were relatively clear with little clouding.
