Discovery NotesThis bacteriophage was discovered along the bank of a man-made pond in Redwater, Tx. The pond is approximately 200 yards away from any roads and very little traffic goes through that area. Trees surround the pond so it is shaded much of the time, but it also receives sunlight. The soil that it was obtained from was extremely moist from approximately 1.6 centimeters from the surface.
Naming NotesThe name HotMessXpress was given to me by another student in class. The name just stuck with me and I thought it described the time that was spent working to obtain information from this phage.
