Naming NotesThis bacteriophage was found deep in a forest where there were all leaves and dirt covering the ground, except for an area where there were some bricks, seeming rather out of place. The first thing that came to mind was L. Frank Baum's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, where Dorothy's house was placed in the most unusual place, on top of the Wicked Witch of the East. Soon after, Glinda the Good Witch of the North comes to see what had happened, which is the name selected for this phage.
