Program Science Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Yes
GPS Coordinates38.83198 N, 77.4644 W Map
Discovery NotesThe phage was isolated from a soil sample taken at a depth of 10.6 cm from a vegetable garden behind a person's house on 09/07/13 at 7:45PM. The approximate air temperature was 75°F (23.9°C). The soil felt dry, but was not bone-dry as it had a slight bit of moisture. The soil was loose, soft, and reddish and did not contain many rocks or other debris. The house was surrounded by forest and was near a major road (U.S. Route 29/Lee Highway). The garden had plots of corn, cabbage, turnips, and lettuce.
Naming NotesNamed after a character from the show "Phineas and Ferb": Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, a mad scientist. The name was changed by a single letter to avoid copyright infringement.
