Discovery NotesPhage LilSpotty was isolated from moderately moist, dark soil on 4/8/2018 by Rinah Kim at a depth of 4 inches. Air temp at time of collection was 14˚C. The collection site distant from buildings; moderately low foot traffic; approximately 50 m from the major road and cement; no water in close proximity; many trees (more than 15) present within the range of 10 m (the site was located in a local park); slightly sloped.

Phage LilSpotty was isolated by standard enrichment protocol at 35˚C.
High-Titer Lysate [Midi-Lysate] (Archive) Titer: 1.6 * 10^10
Date of High-Titer Lysate Titer: 5/23/18

Characterization was performed by Team We're Goin' Viral (Christian Torres, Kelly Duong, Micah Chong, Chris Lee) and Team KARL (Karina Haleblian, Alexis Ballew, Lillian Lai, Rinah Kim).
