Discovery NotesAfter several times of trying to find phage from my enrichment sample from my backyard, I walked outside the building and went to the nearest tree to collect a new soil sample. The soil was dark brown and it was soft and damp. Sure enough, I found phage from this sample.
Naming NotesI told Andreus I couldn't think of a name, but then, it hit me: Bubbles. Then I was like "I have a better name: MrBubbles. So that's how that happened.
