Discovery NotesThis phage was found in moist, fine-textured, loamy soil in Major Hill Park. The soil was under a bed of mulch under a tree. The sample was collected on September 16, 2021.
Naming NotesThe ankh or "key of life" is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol for life. It is a loop with a cross below (☥). It is my hope that this phage can someday serve as the "key of life" for someone afflicted with a multi-drug-resistant super-bug.
