Discovery NotesFound South of the LeTourneau University Society houses' parking lot, immediately North of what appeared to be a firepit, approximately 1/2" below the surface. The soil that was collected was very black, rich and moist, with a little organic detritus.
Naming NotesSince "David" is Mr. Bergman's first name as well as Mr. Nortch's middle name, we knew we wanted to base our phage's name on this fact. We ultimately decided on "KingDavid" because our phage was initially forced to go through some very hard and trying times after its initial discovery in order to actually survive, at which point we discovered that it was actually extremely different from a majority of phages that have been discovered up to this point.
