Discovery NotesPhage OmegaMRC was isolated from soil, collected on 10/08/17 by O. Monifa Sawyerr at a depth of about 3 inches. This sample was a damp soil sample collected around a shrubby area in Santa Monica. There was a lot of plastic and cigarette butts in the area. There was also a lot of tree debris such as leaves and bark covering the area. Air temp at time of collection was 26.7˚C.

OmegaMRC was isolated by direct plating at 35C.

Characterization was performed by Team Plaque It Up (Carly Pierson, O. Monifa Sawyerr, Rina Watanabe).
