Discovery NotesThe collection site for this phage is on the campus of New Mexico Tech by the duck pond. The outside temperature was about 61 degrees Fahrenheit when the soil was collected and it was taken from the ground surface on the bank of the pond. It was extremely moist and dark brown in color. Also it had contained some mossy leaves and twigs in it.
Naming NotesErutan was chosen as the name for this phage for multiple reasons. First, Erutan is nature spelled backwards. Second, one of the meanings of Erutan is persistence. This fits well for the phage because I had to test four soil samples before I was able to obtain a phage. Finally, Erutan is a stage name for a singer who sings folklore songs about nature, which is what I thought of when at the collection site for this phage.
