Discovery NotesIndus was found on a very hot day, with temperatures spiking a high 30°C. However, the location where Indus was found was isolated and cool, as it was under the shade of an Evergreen. The soil under the Evergreen was moist and cool. After half an inch of digging, the soil sample was collected and the phage was isolated through direct isolation.
Naming NotesIndus was found in a tranquil, cool location, which seemed undisturbed by the hustle and bustle of the hot day. The location was vibrant and transportive, and it captured the cool breezes, sparkling water, and lush landscape that are reminiscent the Indus river.
