Discovery NotesWe discovered our phage in soil next to a freshwater man-made pond. The soil was damp but not wet. We dug up grass and other roots in order to reach the soil. We used a spoon to dig about an inch into the ground to retrieve the sample. The soil was dark brown and clumpy.
Naming NotesWe named our phage after the word "facinorous". This word means "atrociously wicked" which is exactly what we want our phage to be. Our phage is so cool, it's wicked. Our phage "wickedly" infects and kills all bacterial hosts.
