Discovery NotesMy Sea-Phages instructor collected dirt form a family farm, beans garden patch. Which is why it was originally called beans. Once I obtained the dirt from my instructor, I characterized it. It was collected over labor day weekend, it was a dry day with dry dirt.
Naming NotesMy virus had a couple trial and errors. I eventually named my virus Lapis inspired from the gem “Lapis Lazuli”. My favorite color is blue and I love stones and gems. The lapis lazuli gem has been associated with strength and courage, royalty and wisdom, intellect and truth. From antiquity, lapis lazuli has been worn in the belief that it will ward off evil.
