Discovery NotesThe soil was collected from an urban area and near a tree which stands right across from STC, where the lab is located at. At that time, the soil was really moist as it rained earlier the day. The place where we took out soil from was really close to college buildings and transformations as well as foot traffic. There were no puddles at that time and the ground was not sloped as well. There were a lot of debris that needed to be taken out from the soil before placing it onto the plastic bag.
Naming NotesFrom the movie, MINIONS! Cause there's a lot of phage's and that represents a lot of minions!
