Found ByJennifer Rowe
Year Found2014
Location FoundOxford, OH USA
Finding InstitutionMiami University
ProgramScience Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Yes
Isolation TemperatureNot entered
GPS CoordinatesUnavailable
Discovery NotesI found the site of capture under decaying flowers, tulips to be specific. The soil was quite dry but slightly moist from rain and the sample was from the top centimetre underneath the flower's stem. There was a brick wall 1 foot from the flower and a pathway 1 foot in the other direction (the flower was in the middle of the flower bed). There was a road approximately 15 feet from the flower bed.
Naming NotesI collected this phage from the flowerbeds outside of the baseball field at Miami University, OH. The name comes from the "home runs" that are hit at the field, and the location I found it. Therefore Miami OH, home run becomes MOHrun.
