Discovery NotesWe found the phage from soil collected from underneath bushes and by a pond. The temperature outside at the time was around 76 degrees Fahrenheit, and the soil was dry, slightly coarse, and dark brown in color.
Naming NotesWe wanted to include "bush" in the name because of where the soil came from, so we thought of naming it after President Bush as a pun. To keep the name short however, we settled on MrBush.
