Naming NotesThe name Bustadash was given to this particular phage due to the fact that it is a lytic phage that is capable of lysing or "busting" the host bacterium, Btk. The "dash" was derived from the Pokemon, Rapidash, which resembles a horse. Since the bacteriophage originated from a horse farm, it was appropriate to entitle the phage after a notable horse.
