Discovery NotesThe phage Pincus was found at "Innovation Garden" from compost soil at George Mason University's Fairfax campus. The weather was perfect and the sun was shining. It was an exquisite day for phage discovery.
Naming NotesThe name Pincus comes from my last name. My dad has a very large family (consisting of 12 children, 6 boys and 6 girls), and I thought I would pay the Pincus family tribute by expanding our species to include mycobacteriophage.
