Discovery NotesThe soil sample was collected at Southern Connecticut State University on 09/06/2019. That day the outside temperature was 62 degrees Fahrenheit and in the previous days the weather had been on and off raining. On the day the discovery the location was damp/wet grass, there was some sunlight exposure, and cloudy. The soil sample was collected about 10feet away from the Southern pond and was 2 cm into the ground.
Naming NotesThe reason I choose to name my phage Kent is because it is short for Kentucky, which is where I'm from.

Plaque NotesMy phage morphology is very interesting because it has a sort of bullseye shape. The plaques are pretty small in diameter with it being 3mm. The outside edge of the plaques are a foggy/cloudy rim and then farther into the plaque there is a dark solid circle. In the very center the plaque is foggy/cloudy again. This is why it looks like a bullseye.
