Discovery NotesThe approximate temperature outside when the phage was discovered was 72°C. The sample was collected at 11:30am on 8/30/16. The site where the sample was found was next to a trash can, where there was scuffed up grass that revealed a muddy area where people had been stepping
Naming NotesThe reason that our phage is named W1llard is because our phage was discovered in Williams Village. There is a number one in W1llard due to the fact that W1llard was the one and only phage from our three soil samples that was successful in infecting bacteria.
