Discovery NotesSansa was found at Colby College in Waterville, Maine next to the Mary Low parking lot. The soil sample was dark brow, not too moist, and contained pine needles, for it was obtained underneath pine trees. From soil at the surface level.
Naming NotesA plaque was obtained from direct plating, but there were only two small plaques. Later on in the process, the plaque chosen to isolate showed itself to be much more interesting in it's morphology than it first appeared. Much like the character of Sansa Stark from George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones. She started out as a naive little girl, and now she's the lady of Winterfell, and a force to be reckoned with.
