Discovery NotesThis phage was found in the soil of a potted plant on Arizona State University's campus.

In finding this phage, we believed our host bacteria to be A. globiformis. However, it was discovered that we were working with an unknown bacteria that had infected our host bacteria originally. The bacteria that this phage has been observed to infect is currently unknown but is being studied further.
Naming NotesThe name for this phage came from the joke of saying something is "up dog" and having someone ask "what's 'updog'?".

Plaque NotesThe plaques of this phage are very circular, and they have clearly defined edges. The plaques of this phage are more opaque on the edges while appearing more transparent in the center of the plaque, which suggests a "bulls-eye" morphology. Depending on the incubation time, the size can rang from 1mm in diameter to 1 cm in diameter.
