Discovery NotesI collected my soil sample in front of Harkins Hall on the Providence College campus at 2:10 pm on Thursday, September 5th 2019. The temperature was 72ºF, it was mostly sunny, and the humidity was 49%. I collected the sample from an area where there were plants surrounding, but not directly above. The mulch above where I collected the sample was dry, so I dug 2-4 inches below the surface to collect my sample.
Naming NotesI named my phage SDM12 because SDM are my initials, and the number 12 is my lucky number.
