Naming NotesThis phage's name was chosen because it is dedicated to my grandmother. She had chosen the location where the sample was taken. Her name is Liu Wu Min Fen (her Chinese name), so I used her sir name "Fen" and her first name and combined the two. However, since this phage was found in her mint garden, I chose to replace her first name "Min" with "mint". Thus, coming up with the name, "MintFen".
