Discovery NotesPhage was discovered at aforementioned coordinates on May 14th, 2018, at 7:38:23 am CDT. Soil samples collected via typical bag method. Currently conducting research on Magneto at Illinois Wesleyan University under the supervision of Dr. Richard Alvey. We have submitted Magneto for TEM analysis and are on pace for DNA sequencing by December. Will update in significant detail at later time, simply wanted to ensure name secured.
Naming NotesThe origin of the phage's name is from the X-Men universe, as it is named after the chief antagonist, Magneto, also known as Erik Magnus Lehnsherr. The character is capable of generating magnetic fields and control metal via telekinesis. I have always found this aspect fascinating, and this was the first comic book character that drew my interest into science. Thus, it holds a special place personally while simultaneously adhering fully to the "Phage Naming Guidlines".
