Discovery NotesSoil was taken on June 1, 2023 at 8am, from a garden with an abundance of plant and animal life. The temperature was 79°F and the soil was slightly moist from rainfall from the previous day. The soil was dug out about 2 inches under the surface, exposing the more dark, moist, & clumpy material. The soil was taken near the base of a large tree in the farmlands of the Robstown/Banquete area. Frequent wildlife: deer, wild rabbits, hogs, small/large birds, coyotes, & dogs. Frequent insect life: ants, bees, worms, & butterflies.
Naming NotesSimilar to the character Hannibal Lecter, the bacteriophage attacks and infects bacteria. Throughout isolation and purification, this phage never stopped eating the host bacteria.
