Discovery NotesThis phage was found on top of Stone Mountain in Stone Mountain, Georgia. The sample type was soil, found between two large rocks, under a shaded pine straw covered area under a tree. This area receives light to moderate foot traffic. The sample was extracted from a depth of approximately 1.5 in. The temperature on day of collection was 52 degrees Fahrenheit.

Naming NotesI chose to name my phage Dragons293 because dragons are one of my favorite mythical creatures, and are known to devour their enemies and destroy their surroundings. Also, I chose the number 293 as a mixture of 2, for the phage's size, and 93 for the year I was born, which was 1993.
