Discovery Information
Found ByErin Natale
Year Found2018
Finding InstitutionUniversity of California, Los Angeles
Program Science Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science
From enriched soil sample?Unknown
GPS Coordinates34.0625 N, 118.4678 W Map
Discovery NotesCollected 10/7/18. The sample was dry, saturated with twigs, small rocks, dog hair, and tree roots. It was therefore extremely dry and rough. The sample was obtained from a dog park in an urban area, which had buildings around but were not close. Had very heavy foot traffic - humans and dogs. The sample was collected from under a tree, with a north-facing slope.
Collected at a depth of 2 inches.
Enrichment isolation at 35C.

Characterization was performed by Team Lysis Finds A Way (LFAW: Shawn Barman, Naiomi Desai, Preston Carroll, Erin Natale) and Team Plaque of the Clones (Nathan Barger, Jasmine Thai, Isa Abdul Cader, Anastasya Panggabean)

MIMG103AL-F18 Instructor: Dr. Amanda Freise
Teaching Assistant: Malcolm Phung
Laboratory Support: Dr. Krisanavane Reddi and Dr. Jordan Moberg Parker
Naming NotesOur team name is Lysis Finds A Way, which is a reference to a line in Jurassic Park. This line was said by Dr. Ian Malcolm, which is why we thought it be appropriate to name our phage after him. Also, our Teaching Assistant’s name is Malcolm so it worked out.
