Discovery NotesThis phage was discovered in a control plate during a phage expansion procedure. It turned out to be the only persistent phage throughout the entire experiment. The original isolated phages did not make it through to lysate form due to contamination issues and difficulty in plaque isolation.
Naming NotesThe name is a link between HSC (Hampden-Sydney College) and Control (Ctrl) as this phage was isolated from the control sample, probably due to an initial contamination.
