  1. Awesome Presentation! I was just wondering if you could provide me with further information regarding what criteria you look for in a phage that make it viable for therapy. Other than that great job!

    1. A phage can be chosen for phage therapy if it has a high titer, the correct host range, so that it can infect its target cell, and is lytic, so that it will kill the target cell. Thank you.

    2. A bacteriophage can be selected for phage therapy if it has a high titer, has the correct host range, so that it will infect its target host, and it must be lytic, so that the phage will kill off the host cell. Thanks

    1. During a bacteriophage life cycle a lytic phage lyses its bacterial host cell, killing it off in the process, while a lysogenic phage just integrates into the host genome, living along with it.
