Discovery NotesThis sample was found in a native species garden located outside Chatham University's Buhl Hall. This soil contained partially decomposing mulch as well as decaying leaves and sticks. The soil was particularly muddy and saturated.
Naming NotesThe name of this phage came from an inside joke in the lab. The PI asked the students for extra glass jars if they had any in order to have more autoclave material. Isabella had a bunch of jars saved as her local recycling service stopped accepting glass. This led to over 20 old strawberry jam jars being repurposed for lab activities once proven to survive the autoclave! JamJar's name is to remember the importance of reuse in science.
