Discovery NotesWe collected our phage at 9:17 am on 9/27/18. The weather was 62 degrees Fahrenheit and cloudy. The soil was a dark brown color and was originally covered with compositing leaves. We dug in the flower bed behind our science building right next to a patch of monkey grass. We made sure that the hole was about 2 inches deep.
Naming NotesFor the first 7 weeks of our adventure, we had no progress whatsoever. Even after we found our phage, one of us (Cameron) still experienced more-than-normal stress levels. He used a stress ball to try and calm his nerves, so we decided to name our phage just that.
