Discovery NotesThis phage was collected on 01/29/2021 at 10:55 am in the gardens of Innovation Hall at George Mason University's Fairfax Campus. The garden topsoil sample collected was moist and a bit frozen. Soil was sandy, and no organic matter was present. Sample was collected about 2 inches below the surface.
Naming NotesI named the phage LittleRascal because it was very challenging to purify. DNA isolation was also very trying.

Plaque NotesAt first, while the phage was in the lytic phase, there was only one plaque morphology. Plaques were tiny and clear, and they had well-defined borders. Then, after the last round of purification, the phage began showing two plaque morphologies, one lytic and the other lysogenic. The lysogenic morphology was bigger and turbid.
