Discovery NotesAfter trying many times to get plaques from collecting dirt, we continued to get nothing after 22 plates. We proceeded to adopt a phage from a lab staff member in the lab department. She collected this phage from the dirt surrounding our nearby campus pond. It appears she had better luck than we did because we also tried to collect dirt from the campus pond and still got nothing.
Naming NotesPaguette was our attempt to combine baguette and phage in a unique way. We then named our phage Typher after some debate.
