Discovery NotesWe collected our sample from the small creek or drainage ditch near the baseball field on the Letourneau campus. We found a great place to collect our soil sample by a creek in a wonderful shaded area. The temperature was 94 degrees so it was a little warm, but the soil was moist and in excellent condition. We had a little trouble getting down to the area that had moist soil, but we found a promising sample in a shaded region. The area that we took our sample from was four or five feet from the water.
Naming NotesIn the spirit of an old pirate-themed board game from the 80s named Rattle Me Bones. We named our phage after the game's namesake, because of the youtube-famous commercial that features the now well-known phrase "Spin the Wheel."
