Naming NotesThis phage was named by Brianna Nielsen, Kim Magalona and Jennifer Jones. We named this phage Weast because of the Spongebob episode where Patrick, Spongebob and Mr. Krabs are on a treasure hunt.

After 10,000 paces, there is nothing, and Mr. Krabs says "But we did everything the map said! 10,000 paces east!" Patrick immediately replies "Oh. East? I thought you said weast!" Mr. Krabs says "Weast? What kind of compass are you reading?" "This one, sir." Mr. Krabs grabs Patrick's compass and says "That's west, Patrick. You're fired again!"
