Discovery NotesOur phage was obtained from a forested location in central Maryland. The sample was taken from 4cm below the surface where the soil was dark brown.
Naming NotesThe name Athena is a symbolic reference to the mythological Greek goddess. Our phage was isolated from a direct plate where there was a smaller chance of successful host infection. Therefore, our phage had a strong presence and relentless courage in parallel to the Greek figure. Athena seemed an appropriate name to represent this bacteriophage.
