  1. Hi Jenkins. Great job! I was wondering, what’s the purpose of this research? Why do we care about phage evolution?

    1. Thank you! Having a comprehensive understanding of phage evolution is important because it helps researchers learn more about how phages interact with bacteria and how they might be used as therapeutic agents.

  2. Hi Jenkins, This was a well-done talk. One question I had was what can we apply this research to, what is the function of the Junior mint gene and how can this be useful for other research?

    1. Hi Jenna, thank you! We can apply research on phage evolution to better understand how phages interact with bacteria which can allow researchers to be more efficient in regulating bacterial populations.

  3. Hi Jenkins! Why does it matter for us to understand the diversity and complexity of phages?

    1. Having a comprehensive understanding of the diversity and complexity of phages is important because it helps researchers learn more about how phages interact with bacteria and how they might be used as therapeutic agents.

  4. Hi Josh, great job with your video. What are some of the factors that phages are grouped into clusters by?

    1. Thank you! phages are grouped into clusters based on their overall nucleotide sequence similarity and shared gene content.
