Discovery NotesThis phage was discovered from a soil source about 20 yards away from the entrance to the Nordenberg Residence Hall. The soil in which it was discovered was extremely soft and contained very small soil particles; the soil was also slightly moist and shaded by surrounding vegetation (weeds, grasses) and buildings.
Naming NotesI decided to name this phage "Forza" because "forza" translates to "strength" in Italian. My family is Italian, and I wanted to dedicate the name to my family's heritage.
