Naming NotesThe name for this phage came from the concept of fission which involves splitting an atom. This process is being compared to some phages' lytic abilities which allow them to destroy a bacteria through breaking it down. The X29 part of the name refers to the x men character X29, who has razor sharp claws perfect for cutting things like a phage that can lyse a bacteria.
