Discovery NotesThe phage was derived from top soil that was collected in a back yard in Vineland, on a humid night, near a stone driveway. The soil was slightly moist due to condensation.
Naming NotesThe name Prospero is derived from two topics. First, it was chosen due to the phage's high, or prosperous, success rate in lab procedures. Secondly, the name was found in the play the Tempest by the great playwright William Shakespeare. Prospero is an older Italian name that roughly translates to "prosperous one".
