  1. Very well done presentation! I was wondering if it is possible to potentially complete an archive for Phages in this example, if you think that this will be the most useful way to fight antibiotic resistance or do you think there is another option that will be more useful.

    1. Thank you! Yes, we actually did end up archiving our phage lysate. I think archiving is the most useful way to fight antibiotic resistance because our phage is lytic so it will potentially be able to kill other pathogenic bacteria that are similar to m. smeg.

  2. Hi! I really enjoyed watching your presentation! I was curious to understand more about how phages help in replacement as antibiotics? How does a phage target the bacteria that an antibiotic would have to?

    1. Hey! I phage targets the bacteria because they are very specific and have receptors that bind to the bacterial cells.

  3. What would it mean if a phage was denatured? How would that effect the function of the phage?

    1. If the phage DNA is denatured that basically means it damaged, and the experimentation conducted on the denatured DNA would not really be effective in terms of researching the phage because its not the phage’s actual DNA.

  4. Nice job! I was wondering how will further classification specifically help with developing treatments?

    1. Further classification of the phage will help us determine which bacteria the phage is most likely to infect. This is due to the fact that phages in similar clusters and sub-clusters have similar qualities.
