Discovery NotesI discovered this phage in a soil bed right outside of my housing unit. The soil was extremely dry and crumbly. Another thing I noticed was that there were quite a few organisms living within the soil. The day I collected the sample the weather was extremely hot. I think this could account for the dryness of the soil.
Naming NotesSouci is the French name for marigold. Marigold is a type of flower. It is extremely beautiful and reminds me greatly of the sun.
