Discovery NotesThis sample was collected at TESC campus.
In the beginning of the purification process, many different plaques were present. This one was originally isolated from a highly contaminated plate - and the phage creating uniform plaques was a big surprise. From that first isolation the plaques shown were consistent in size, shape, and appearance.
Naming NotesDanny: Stay Spooky!
