Discovery NotesThis phage was collected from a dilapidated cemetery, near a very old overturned headstone.
Naming Notes"Strigoi" is a Romanian name for "vampire," (Nosferatu was already taken). I was inspired by the parasitic nature of phages in conjunction with their dubious standing, as viruses, among the technically "living." Thus, the selection of a desecrated cemetery for this phage's discovery.
