Discovery NotesThe soil sample came from a community garden. The depth of soil was around 2cm and the soil was also dry and dusty. The garden was jointly Nithya’s and Ellie’s.
Naming NotesFound by Xavier.

Xavier: I called my friend last minute asking if I could take her soil, so it's only fair that I name the phage after her. I would like to thank Ellie for letting me come to her garden on such short notice. I also want to thank Haley for being such a great lab partner this semester (F2020) and Dr. Chia for teaching this course.

Pronounced: Nih-thyah like “with ya”.

Cluster Life CycleLytic
Lysogeny NotesBecause the plaques are so small, it is hard to tell whether Nithya is lytic or lysogenic. We believe that Nithya is lytic because the plaques tend to be clear and not turbid.
