Discovery NotesThis phage was isolated from a sample of soil taken from a community compost pile at the university. It had been rainy and humid in the days leading up to the soil collection. The sample was wet and made up of organic matter. The sample was taken from an inch into the pile. The time of collection was 10:19am on September 25, 2018. The temperature outside was 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

The method of isolation used was enriched isolation.
Naming NotesThe name Nicolablo came to me in a dream. There was a famous person who just could not pronounce my actual name right and ended up calling me Nicolablo instead... it's somewhere between Nicola and Pablo, or perhaps Diablo. Thanks, subconscious.

I decided to name my phage Nicolablo because it grows quickly and aggressively, so the name seemed fitting. It's a little tough, a little fierce, and maybe a little goofy. Just my speed.
