Discovery NotesA soil sample was collected on from just below the Jamieson Ave. bridge over Hooff's Run, in Alexandria, Virginia. During the summer of 2018 I analyzed eDNA of the microbial community in six different sites in Hooff's Run, Cameron Run, and Hunting Creek. The Hooff's Run water sample from this location had the lowest relative abundance of the phylum Actinobacteria, so I thought this might be an interesting place to look for a bacteriophage for a host in the same phylum.

The phage is named for Dr. Beth Schomber, my chemistry professor from Northern Virginia Community College in Annandale, who will deny it but was my greatest inspiration to pursue a research career.
