The soil sample was collected from a slightly saturated dirt sample.
Naming NotesWe were collecting a lot of data for our phage over the Halloween season and we wanted a name to represent our liking for this time of the year. We chose the name "Casper The Host" as a play-on-words from the well known Halloween movie, "Casper the Friendly Ghost".
