Discovery NotesThe soil sample was collected on August 17th, 2018 at 1:01 PM. The local temperature was 35 degrees Celsius. The atmosphere was very humid, and it was sunny out. The soil collected was moist, clumping, dark, and full of organic matter. The soil was collected by a tree in an area with no grass, and plenty of shade.
Naming NotesThe name for this phage was chosen because of the discoverer's Irish heritage. Due to repeated difficulty during the "Phage Titer" protocol, the discoverer compared it to a leprechaun chasing his pot of gold. Thus the name PotOGold was bestowed upon the phage.
