Discovery NotesIn the front of the Life Sciences building on my college campus on 1/23/2023, I used a plastic spoon and sampled the first inch of surface soil and put that amount and the spoon into a plastic bag. It was 50 degrees F outside when I took this sample.
Naming NotesMy phage, in each of the lysate and spot test plates it has been tested on, shows the tendency of eating nearly, if not, ALL of the bacterial lawn matter indefinitely. A very hungry and ravenous phage it must be. Therefore, as homage to the classic hungry and ravenous vampire himself in pop culture, I named my phage VladTepes.
