Discovery NotesThere was a rainstorm a few days before the soil collection happened. On the day of collection, it was sunny, however, sunlight did not shine on the collection area. When the soil was taken, the outside temperature was 17.8 degrees Celsius. Also, the site was next to a trail, which looked as if it was hardly used. At the collection site, 20 millimeters were dug into the ground with a spatula, and 15 milliliters of the soil was taken. The soil was damp and was surrounded by decomposing leaves and sticks. The collection happened around 9:04 AM on August 31, 2020. This was the second soil sample collected that day.
Naming NotesI wanted the name of my bacteriophage to be significant, so I decided to name it "Asa16." "Asa" has a meaning in multiple languages. A few of the languages are Hebrew, where it means healer; Japanese, where it means morning (symbolic for new beginnings); and Persian, where it means powerful and beautiful. "16" in the name represents the age I was when I collected the bacteriophage.
