Discovery NotesThe soil was wet, possessing a mud-like texture as it was obtained from the side of a stream. The sample was initially a dark brown coloration with few light brown spots. Sample contained biodegradable plant organisms such as roots, flowers, and duck feces; the composition of the saturated soil consisted of sand and organic matter. Soil was retrieved from the surface of the ground and down about 2-3 inches below surface level. The time of day was 3:40 p.m. on January 8, 2019.
Naming NotesMy name is UY. SEAPHAGES has taught me, as well as my peers, what it means to fail or to mess up in science. Even if a procedure was to be done correctly, there were times when the experiment still did not work. It was discouraging. But the lesson I learned is that sometimes, to get to who and where I am today ("uY"), it required me to go backwards ("Yu") to fix and perfect previous steps. My mistakes were no longer setbacks, but opportunities to make me a better scientist.

Plaque NotesThe plaques are clear, but surrounded by a dark halo ring. This indicates the presence of a lysogenic phage colony. The diameter of the clear inner circle alone is 2 mm, and the combined diameter of the circle with the outer ring is around 4 mm.
