Isolation HostMicrobacterium foliorum NRRL B-24224 SEA
Found ByGeorgia Matheson
Year Found2018
Location FoundCullowhee, NC United States
Finding InstitutionWestern Carolina University
ProgramScience Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Yes

GPS Coordinates35.302778 N, 83.183611 W Map
Discovery NotesSample taken from the surface of the soil just underneath running water in Cullowhee Creek.
Naming NotesThe name "LittleHoudini" came from the disappearing act that the phage performed during discovery. When growing a new batch of bacteria to use in our discovery/characterization experiments, the phage revealed a great sensitivity to a change in the type of peptone and disappeared for a while until the bacteria was grown the original way(or at least close to it).

Plaque NotesThe morphology of LittleHoudini at the beginning was small and very clear, but after messing with the formula of the bacterial growth agents, the plaques remained a familiar size, but took on a bit of a hazy glaze instead of being perfectly transparent as they were.
