Discovery NotesThis phage discovery took place in BIOL-289 under the instruction and supervision of Dr.Ugochukwu Anieto and Dr.Negin Mirhosseini. I found this soil sample in a plowed, tilled crop field next to my grandparent's home. The soil was a silt loam type of soil, and the hole dug to collect the silt loam soil was about 7 inches deep and the weather that day was 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Naming NotesThe phage's name comes from after naming it after myself "Emely," and as it's a soil sample, I combined it with the word "terra," meaning earth; hence the name "Emera" came to fruition.
