Discovery NotesLong2B was isolated from the University of California Santa Cruz's farm. The soil was collected from one of the compost piles used for the farm.
Naming NotesLong2B is short for L2-B. I used the label L2-B to keep track of the bacteriophage for the dilutions and plates during the experiment. I did not want to give that up. So I came up with "Long2B."

I also thought it was poetic. The bacteriophage has a long tail so I thought it "Longs to be inside a bacteria." Some people say, "I long to be with her" or "I long to be a doctor." The phrase is meant to express a desire. The bacteriophage wants to infect a host and that is why its tail is so long.
