    1. Phages are grouped into clusters based on their DNA similarities. So, all phages in A3 subcluster will have about 70% or more similarity, and the same applies to the other subclusters as well.

  1. Hi Ellie, Nice poster ! What do you predict would happen if you used other cations (from your future directions)?

    1. I got this idea from another group of students at the National SEA Phages symposium. In their experiments, the size of the plaques increased when Ca2+ was added to the plates. I would have to do some more research to make a hypothesis regarding how the plaques from my phage would be affected.

  2. Hii nicely done presentation! I was wondering if there was a motivation behind studying this specific bacteriophage to begin with or if it was randomly chosen?

    1. We gathered a random soil sample and we did an experiment called enrichment which allows us to incubate our phage with its host bacteria in order to gather a ton of the phages. So, the phage we worked with was collected randomly!
