Discovery NotesThe phage was discovered from a soil sample from La Sierra University behind South Hall. The soil sample was taken approximately 6 feet away from the dumpster and 10 feet away from the fire hydrant. The soil sample was taken from a spot between the plants and the grass where there was a lot of dirt that had accumulated. The temperature was 52 degreed Fahrenheit with light drizzle. The soil sample was taken very near the surface as the roots of the plants and the grass made it difficult to get deep into the soil. The soil sample itself was very cold, moist, and filled with organic matter.
Naming NotesI named the phage KaiHaiDragon as my Chinese middle character is Kai, my father's middle Chinese character is Hai, and my father's last Chinese character means dragon. I wanted my dad to be a part of my phage name as he has been a big reason in me getting to where I am now and it was only right that I choose a name that had a part of both him and me in it.
