Discovery NotesThe soil sample was collected in a small garden under a bush that provided plenty of shade. The weather was 29.4 degrees Celsius, mostly sunny, and a little humid. We collected the sample at 10:20 in the morning and dug about 1 inch deep before collecting soil. The soil we collected was dark, thick, and had some worms crawling around.
Naming NotesOur group came up with the name Phalsh4 because we ran through the processes of purification quickly and accurately. We jumped ahead of most of the class giving us the Phlash name. The 4 in the name is referring to the four guys that participated in the experiment.

Plaque NotesWe had two sizes of plaques throughout purification. We had some micro plaques due to a heat shock in the incubator which we could not get rid of during purification. The normal size plaques had an average diameter of 0.45cm. The micro plaques had an average diameter of 0.1cm. The plaques had clear centers, and rigid outsides after 48 hours of incubation.
