Discovery NotesIsolated by TA Dominic Garza.
Isolated using mixed culture method.

An enriched culture was prepared by combining 15 mL of soil with 25 mL of PYCA broth. The bacterial strains of A. sp., A. globiformis, A. sulfureus and A. atrocyaneus were then added in a ratio of 1:5:192:588 respectively. The enriched culture was incubated at 30℃ for 48 hours with shaking. After filtering with a 0.22 µm filter, the sample was plated on PYCA plates with 2X PYCa soft agar using the standard pour plate method.

Sample description: The soil sample was half dry and half moist. The collection site was urban. It was collected at the base of a tree right outside of an apartment complex. There was adequate access to water with drippings falling from the tree above. The collection site was not sloped.
Naming NotesThe name is a direct reference to the album Emotion – produced by singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen.
