Discovery NotesI dug up my soil at about 7:35 a.m., right outside Wampler Hall. The dirt was a good mix of fertilizer, mulch, and soil. It was very moist and damp since it was early in the morning and I didn't dig down too deep (approximately a couple centimeters or so down).
Naming NotesI named my phage BrofessorX because I really like bro jokes (i.e. Brotato Chip, Brozilla, Broback Brobama), and so I figured a major "science-y" type character, (Professor X from the X-Men), was a suitable choice for my awesome phage.
