Discovery NotesSoil sample was collected from a pile of Loam behind a green house on campus, as recommended by a gardener on staff!
Naming NotesWhile my partner and I knew that our soil sample was collected from a pile of Loam, we were not exactly sure what Loam was. So, after a brief google search of "Lome" we discovered that Lome was the capital city of the African country Togo. Upon this realization, we knew that we had to name our novel phage "Togo" after our humorous blunder.
