Where specifically was this bacteriophage found and under what weather conditions was the soil sample taken?
The TA’s collected our phage samples for us, but we do know the sample was taken from Boulder.
What are the indicators that show the phage is lytic?
Lytic phages don’t have a repressor protein in their genome.
What impacts does diameter size of the plaque?
what impacts does diameter size have on the plaque?*
Diameter size is correlated to adsorption rate (infection rate).
How would you induce point mutations?
You can induce point mutations with ultra violet radiation
What data are you hoping to gain from further analyzing with PCR and restriction digest?
Restriction digest could give us insight into what cluster our phage is a part of.
does the morphology of your phage make it a better candidate for certain types of phage therapy?
No, a lytic phage would be a better candidate for phage therapy.
