Discovery NotesNotes from collector: "I collected my soil sample from a pond in Denton. The soil was completed submerged in water with algae present. Animals, mainly ducks, frequent the pond."
Naming NotesHaizum was originally isolated in a mixed lysate including the phage Thestral. A "thestral" is a creature from the Harry Potter series. "Thestrals" are flying horses that can only be seen by those whom have seen death. Since Haizum was found within the Thestral sample, we thought it appropriate to name this phage after another flying horse. Haizum in the white flying horse of the angel Gabriel in Islamic tradition. Though Haizum is only known to Islamic tradition, Gabriel is conserved throughout many religions including Islam as the bringer of life and good news which is rather opposite from the "thestral" creatures thus making them an interesting pair.
