Discovery NotesThis phage was found in soil between a grassy area and a shrub on the eastern lawn of the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh. It was collected in the morning as the soil was still damp, but warm from the morning sun. Air temperature was approximately 65˚F.
Naming NotesI have decided to name my phage none other than "Roc87" in reference to the legendary Pitt Panther mascot. Since "Roc" only has three letters I thought it would be appropriate to include the "87" from 1787, the year the University of Pittsburgh was founded. Just as my strain of phage infects and destroys bacteria, the pride of Roc and the Pitt Panthers continues to destroy their opponents.
