Discovery NotesThis phage was found near the laboratoy soil, the soil that it was extracted from was moist and dark. The colonies were so small and grow after a 24hr incubation at 37C. It is location 3A on the lysate prepared
Naming NotesThe name of this phage comes directly to my own name Zakhe meaning 'make'. This phage is morphologically different compare to other phages that were isolated as it had a prolate head and tail. the code 101 means that it usually have a spot that include plaques inside a rare feacture in the immunity test. Therefore its name is Zakhe101
