Discovery NotesThe area that I collected my phage from is on a foot path and was about one foot away from a murky puddle in the dirt. It was taken from a soil sample with a green fuzzy substance on top. The depth of the sample was 1.5 cm and the temperature outside was 69 degrees F and sunny.
It has an average capsid head diameter of 61.5438 nm and a average tail length of 178.2136 nm. Xeno's capsid head standard deviation is 1.50897 nm and the tail length standard deviation is 8.37814 nm.
Naming NotesXeno is named after Xenophilius Lovegood from Harry Potter. I love Harry Potter, so I wanted to relate my phage to it in some way. Since Xenophilius Lovegood is a bit of an odd character, I thought it was fitting to name my mycobacteriophage after him.
