Found ByAlmas Thaha , Tracy Marcelis
Year Found2018
Location FoundPhiladelphia, PA USA
Finding InstitutionDrexel University
ProgramScience Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Yes
Isolation Temperature23°C
GPS Coordinates39.9598 N, 75.1904 W Map
Discovery NotesWhen collecting the soil, an area of the soil touching the root was taken as well as part of to root. The only obstacle present while collecting the soil was the damp texture of the soil due to the rainfall that took place an hour beforehand. Therefore the soil collected was arranged in clumps rich in water, and parts of the root of the tree.
Naming NotesThe phage was named MillyPhilly because it was found outside of a building called "Millennium Hall" on Drexel University's campus which is located in Philadelphia.

Plaque NotesThe plaque morphology of this phage has varied throughout isolation and purification. Originally having a more temperate morphology, the image of the plaques show a more clear morphology, but in more recent assays the plaques have been temperate again. The pure population of this phage has multiple morphologies with varying sizes. In the image shown, the sizes include plaques with diameters of 2mm, 1.5mm, and 1mm. The pure population was verified.
