Discovery NotesThe soil sample this phage came from was taken at a depth of approximately 7.62 cm (3 inches) on 8/20/12. It was about 75°F that day. The soil was somewhat moist and taken from a patch of soil next to my house (located in a suburban area). It was surrounded by trees, shrubs, grass, etc. and was very close to an area with heavy foot-traffic.
