Discovery NotesThe soil sample was taken in the yard of a house situated on a heavily trafficked road. There are a couple of trees in the yard, but most of it is grass and asphalt.
Naming NotesThe phage was named after Jonathan Jacobo who is the main antagonist of the 2004 film Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. Our group wanted a name that was unique, but easily identifiable. Our phage acted like a "monster unleashed" in the sense that is decimated the host bacteria!

Plaque NotesMost plaques have the same morphology, some have a smaller radius, but all are circular in shape. They present as rings, and are consistent in their presentation. The burst of the phage appears to leave a little bit of the host bacteria creating the ring effect that we described. The average radius of the plaques are 2 x 1 mm and the areas the phages were sampled from are translucent.
