Discovery NotesThe phage was collected at a community park where there were ducks and geese present. The sample was taken from a spot that had clear signs of moisture, and had fecal matter on the surface of the surrounding area.
Naming NotesThe name originated from a popular insurance commercial that used a duck as the their mascot. The reason I decided to use that name is due to the presence of ducks at the area where the phage was collected.
