  1. What was the expected outcome of the soil you tested (disregard my first question please)?

    1. After enrichment, temperate, lytic, or no plaques could have been produced. The first round of enrichment with a soil sample didn’t produce any plaques so we weren’t very confident the second time around.

  2. Hey! Great job on your presentation! What type of viral infections do you think duckduckgoose would be useful to treat and why?

    1. We would need to do restriction digest and PCR tests to determine the phage cluster in order to make predictions regarding the type of bacteria it can be used for treatment.

    1. We didn’t make a hypothesis because there was no way of predicting the lifestyle of the phage from the soil sample until we performed enrichment and purification and studied the plaque morphology.
