Discovery NotesArthrobacter phage Whytu was isolated by Lucy Nakashima from soil by direct plating at 25ºC. The site was a part that included a playground and an open, grassy area for dogs. There were some trees around the site, as well as gopher holes in the ground. The soil was collected from the far side of the part near the cement walkway. The phage was characterized by Team All the World’s a Phage (Sarah Fett, Mujtahid Rahman, Vincent Tse, Aida Vargas) and Team PhageBook (Lucy Nakashima, Breanna Cayabyab, Haoyuan Liu).
