Discovery NotesThe soil sample I gathered was from the garden in my backyard back home. I gathered the sample at 6:28 pm and it was 94 degrees Fahrenheit. The sample I gathered was picked up by a plastic spoon and scooped into the bag. The sample I gathered was very dry and grainy. It was very thin dirt with some chunks of fertilizer.
Naming NotesThe reason why I named my phage "Koya" is because it s the name of a koala character from Korea. It's characteristics compose of being very wise and knowledgeable and I thought it was appropriate since it is a science research lab.
Sequencing Information
Sequencing Complete?No
Genome length (bp)Unknown
Character of genome endsUnknown
Fasta file available?No
Characterization
ClusterUnclustered
Subcluster--
Lysogeny NotesMy plaques never showed a sign of being a lysogenic phage so I never had to perform the lysogeny test. So my phage is most likely a lytic phage since the morphology of my plaques were clear and there was nothing growing on the inside of the plaque.
Annotation StatusNot sequenced
Plaque NotesMy typical plaque is usually around the average size of 1 millimeters. Each plaque was circular and always had clean cut edges so they were never ridged.
