Discovery NotesMy initial sample was an enriched soil sample from near the gravel parking lot in my school. I would then try to filter out the soil sample many times but every time i plated my sample it would be contaminated. I then decided to adopt a plaque from my lab partner Destiny and I was then able to isolate my phage.
Naming NotesI named my phage NarutObito because of my favorite anime called Naruto and my favorite characters are Naruto and Obito. They both have identical personalities. Both were ignored by their peers in the Academy(ninja school) because of their lack of skill.Both dreamed of being recognized by the village and becoming Hokage (strongest of the village) and they are extremely good at convincing and manipulating people with their words. After Obito finds out his best friend/teammate killed the girls he loves who was also their teammate, he decided he did not want to accept the world he lived in. Basically turned into a god guy gone bad. He started many wars and cause devastation for years because of the pain he felt. If it wasn't for Naruto's friend's/support after all the pain he experienced himself, he would have turned into Obito, a "savior" into a "destroyer". I love that symbolism in the show and since theirs names kind of go together I thought it would be perfect.
