Discovery NotesThis phage was found in the middle of a grass lawn, so there was a lot of organic material in the sample. The soil was not too moist and the air was of a moderate humidity. The soil depth was 0" to 0.50" deep. Collected in the early evening hours.
Naming NotesThis phage was discovered by my Catholic elementary school, with SBN representing Saint Brendan the Navigator. The MerCougar part comes from the car that I drive, which is a late-1970s Mercury Cougar.
