Naming NotesI saw the new movie "IT" that came out this year (2017). And I became obsessed with the main character, the clown named Pennywise. Despite the slight unnatural obsession I thought it would be a good name for the phage because the phage is a virus for bacteria and you can compare a virus to the characteristics of a clown from Derry.
