Discovery NotesMy soil sample was gathered beside a tree at Lake Forest Park in Denton, Texas. On the day it was collected, January 30th, 2019 at 9:48 am, it was cloudy and windy with a temperature of 39 °F and it was notable that it had rained a bit prior to my arrival. The soil sample had a dark/light brown color, it was moist in some areas and dry in others, it had a grainy texture and it didn’t hold it’s shape well when compacted.
Naming NotesGrowing up I was always the jokester in my family, no matter how serious a situation was I always cracked a joke. I was having issues trying to come up with a name, but my father jokingly said, “why not joking”. I took it, then modified it. This is notable when I split it up by capitalizing certain letters. One of my close friends was helping me modify it and noticed that his last name was prominent. So, I split it into sections and did part of my name which is “Jo” and my good friends last name which is “King.” They thought I wouldn’t do it and I would select a different name, but I like the unexpected.
Sequencing Information
Sequencing Complete?No
Genome length (bp)Unknown
Character of genome endsUnknown
Fasta file available?No
Lysogeny NotesOn two of my trials they got contaminated and there were orange and yellowish-brown colored specks. On another one of my trials there was nothing at all, no colonies or contamination, probably because I didn't scrape anything from my plaque.
Annotating InstitutionUnknown or unassigned
Annotation StatusNot sequenced
Plaque NotesThe size of my plaques ranged from small to large, with a span between .5mm – 1mm. The larger plaques tended to have an oval shape, those with a circular shape would have a section that waved. The smaller plaques would be circular in form. Some plaques were clumped together and formed deformed shapes.
