  1. What further research would be done to determine the cluster the phage belongs to?

    1. By performing Restriction Digest and the PCR, the results can be collected and compared to the results of previously identified clusters. This match can be made with the digitally rendered cluster online and the unknown phage cluster can be identified, making the phage one step closer to possible sequencing and use in clinical arenas.

  2. Great poster and great presentation, what specific improvements in our day to day lives would we see (such as clinical implication) if there is positive outcomes if we perform the further research must be conducted on Jerald.

    1. Since the phage is lytic, Jerald is a good candidate for phage therapy. Possible uses of this include treating common infections and acting as an alternative to antibiotics, essentially serving as a solution to the growing global issue of antibiotic resistance bacteria.
