Discovery NotesThis phage was found by an isolated area along the Constitution Trail nearby Illinois Wesleyan University. It was in an area with many nearby trees. My soil sample was obtained from an enclosed field with an abundance of organic matter, as well as chopped down logs. Soil seemed to be not as moist. Instead it was more dry and almost gritty.
Naming NotesBeing found in a soil sample near Constitution Trail, I took the first five letters of the trail name ('const') and decided to add 'ella' to the end: Constella.
