Discovery NotesDr. Rueschhoff found our phage from the Ohio River boat ramp by the ampitheater in New Albany. The temperature outside was 29 degrees Celsius. The soil was wet and rocky and collected from the top two inches off the soil surface.
Naming NotesWe based our name of phage on serial dilutions. A way to remember the process being called “serial dilution”, we compared it to serial killers, because they repeat or do again and again. So, our name is SerialKiller. (Alissa Kincade and Katie Durbin are the adoptive parents of this phage)
