    1. Our original soil sample was extracted from the CU Boulder campus at these coordinates: (40.00533, -105.26549). The location was chosen to be convenient to us and the climate was not specific to our experiments/results, but it could have affected our results in some way.

    1. Hi! We could expose the phage sample collected to some form of UV radiation (maybe using lamps) and see how UV radiation affects phage infectivity and which phage gets killed and which survived, as well as the reasons for these results.

    1. Lytic phage, compared to lysogenic phage, should be more effective in killing the phage due to it replicating inside the host cell and lysing out, which kills the bacteria. In the lysogenic cycle, the phage inject its DNA into the host cell, but does not kill the cell.
