Discovery NotesEmperor was found as a prophage of Gordonia westfalica NRRL-B-24152. Liquid Gordonia westfalica was spotted on Gordonia terrae 3612, and the resulting phage release was picked and amplified, and called Emperor.
Naming NotesI named this after Emperor Palpatine, because I like Star Wars and the name has a decent ring to it.
