From enriched soil sample?Yes
Isolation TemperatureNot entered
GPS Coordinates40.875645 N, 74.096035 W Map
Discovery NotesThe soil sample was collected from an area of dirt around a tree about 1.5 inches deep into the ground. When I collected the soil, it was approximately 2.78 degrees Celsius. It was also raining so the soil I obtained was fairly muddy.
Naming NotesI named my phage Romeo because my name is Juliet and it is a reference to Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet".

Plaque NotesAfter a 24 hour incubation period at 37 degrees Celsius, most of the plaques were approximately 0.1- 0.5 mm long in diameter. After a 48 hour incubation period at 37 degrees Celsius, the plaques were approximately 0.5 - 1.5 mm long in diameter. For each titer assay, the plaques were picked after a 48 hour incubation period. All the plaques were turbid and had a turbid halo.
