  1. How would performing “permissive temperature range for phage adsorption and infection” contribute to research into bacteriophage’s ability to defend against antibiotic resistant bacteria?

    1. Performing permissive temperature range for phage adsorption and infection will contribute to research into bacteriophage’s ability to defend against antibiotic resistance because it would allow us to find out whether or not bacteriophages can do their job no matter what the temperature of their environment is. Knowing that information will be able to tell us whether or not phages can work in diverse environments.

  2. Why is there no sound to the video? Also why was H2O added to the 6 individual restriction enzyme tubes?

    1. There was no water added to 6 individual enzyme tubes, our restriction enzyme did not produce cuts for 6 lanes. There should be sound last time I checked.

    2. There should be sound, there was last time I checked. Also, there was no water added to the restriction enzyme cuts, there were just no cuts produced for those enzymes.

  3. I was not able to hear the presentation at all, unfortunately. For future directions, would you eventually be able to isolate this phage to treat antibiotic resistant diseases in patients (with much greater testing and clinical trials beforehand)?

    1. Yes, this phage will be a candidate for phage therapy and have the ability to treat antibiotic resistance due to the fact that it is a lytic phage and has a high lyse time. Both of these aspects will aid in fighting against bacteria in humans.
