Discovery NotesThis phage was found by the campus pond, in the middle of campus. It was found in the dirt around the pond.
Naming NotesWe couldn't figure out what name we wanted to name our phage, so we were stuck. We were looking at the rules and ruling out names we could and couldn't have. One of the members of our group's name is Wilca and we thought it would be best if we named it that so it is easy to remember.
