Discovery NotesThis sample was taken from the quad at University of the Sciences on February 16th, 2021 at 7:55AM, very close to the parking lot. The soil was collected from a 4 cm depth and was determined to be moist. This is an urban area. It was from a planter, so there is no foot traffic on the soil itself. The ground was not sloped and there were various grass plants in the planter. There was snow around the location as well.
Naming NotesThe soil sample originally went by as DebbieJS. Upon further discussion, our group thought Saboteur was a more appropriate name considering it means to deliberately damage or destroy something, much like the bacteriophage destroys the host bacteria.
