|Isolation Host||Gordonia rubripertincta NRRL B-16540|
|Found By||Augusto Romero|
|Location Found||Fairfax, VA United States of America|

|Program||Science Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science|
|From enriched soil sample?||Yes|
|Discovery Notes||Sample was taken from mud near a green area by a heavily transited area in George Mason's Fairfax campus.|
This area was chosen in hopes that hardy, aggressive phages had been brought from all around by the people walking near what probably the busiest building on campus, namely the Johnson Center.
|Naming Notes||Cabezon means big headed in spanish. It is used colloquially to denote that someone is stubborn. This phage has this name as it was difficult to get good plates with it as it displayed turbid and lytic plaque morphologies, with the former being more common. |
With a little nudging, it produced pretty good plates.
