Discovery NotesThe Phage “Claudi” is a podoviridae. Claudi was isolated from an enrichment culture made from the soil obtained from the root of a tree on West Cary Street, Richmond, VA.
Naming NotesThe name "Claudi" derives from the Latin word "claudicare" meaning to have a limp. Being that Claudi has a short stubby none extending tail, the name seemed fitting.
