Discovery NotesCreek bed soil from Cullowhee Creek, adjacent to Ramsey center, at the second (older) wooden bridge. Soil was in a well shaded area due to a close by tree, and out of direct exposure from people in consideration of the location on campus.
Naming NotesDue to the fuzzy or cloudy plaques that this specific phage created, I thought it was appropriate to include fuzz into the name. The ending portion of the name was determined by my experience in trying to the phage to grow because it almost disappeared, but I was able to revive the virus.
