Discovery NotesIsolated by TA Dominic Garza

An enriched culture was prepared by combining 15 mL of soil with 25 mL of PYCA broth. The bacterial strains of A. sp., A. globiformis, A. sulfureus and A. atrocyaneus were then added in a ratio of 1:5:192:588 respectively. The enriched culture was incubated at 30℃ for 48 hours with shaking. After filtering with a 0.22 µm filter, the sample was plated on PYCA plates with 2X PYCa soft agar using the standard pour plate method.
Naming NotesThe name is a direct reference to the EP Vroom Vroom – produced by singer/songwriter Charli XCX.
