Discovery NotesCollected from an animal pasture not far from my house. The area contained donkeys and goats. The sample was taken from a depth of approximately 6 cm in relatively dry soil.
Naming NotesA nexus is a connection between two or more things. My phage morphology is large and at higher concentrations the way they clustered made the bacteria between the plaques look like pathways, hence the name Nexus
