Discovery NotesThis phage was isolated from 5g of soil sample collected at 4: 41 pm CDT from a wildflower patch beside an apartment at LeTourneau University. The top foliage was first removed before digging about 2 inches deep and an inch wide to get the sample. The soil was dark and moist. The weather was sunny with scattered clouds and was 38°C with 30% humidity. We then returned the samples to the lab and added 5g to the Middlebrook 7 H9 completed medium before subsequent processing.
Naming NotesThe name Lunsford honors Dr. Dale Lunsford who served as the sixth president of LeTourneau University from 2007 to 2021, and is now the Chancellor of the University.
