Still Trying

Another week of phage hunting starts tomorrow. I have 8 samples going right now. I have kept 4 samples going and 4 new samples I started on Wednesday. I have tried many different areas around Baylor such as a flower bed by Sid Rich, and a drain by the BSB. These seem promising since Arthrobacter thrive in harsh environments. I am hoping that the industrial chemicals in the flowerbed and the drain may attract Arthrobacter and as a result phage. C’mon phages!
