Discovery NotesSample was taken from a mature garden with moist soil that potentially had some potting/gardening soil and is regularly watered. Sample was taken on a sunny day that was 84 degrees F. Surrounded by flowers, grass, wood chips, and bushes.
Naming NotesI named my phage SavingGrace because during the sample collection process I collected 13 soil samples, but didn't identify any phage. A classmate let me adopt a phage from her sample so that I could continue to participate in the research. Thus the name, SavingGrace since adoption was my last opportunity.

Plaque NotesSavingGrace measures out to be about 6mm in diameter. The plaques present on the bacterial lawn are circular in shape with smooth, fuzzy borders which means SavingGrace’s phages are rapid lysis mutants. Absorption has a negative effect on plaque size, productivity, and the concentration of phages in the plaques. This can sometimes be shown in the turbidity of the plaque clearing. In SavingGrace, we see that the plaques are slightly foggy and have no distinct clearings.
