  1. Great job! Interesting that your phage is classified as cluster F, I know you talked about this a little bit but what does the cluster tell you about your phage?

  2. Hey Daanish!

    Great presentation overall. the information present is super interesting as well the applications for future directions.

    I had a question about the significance of the type of phage present. Why does it matter and how do different phages affect bacteria?

    1. Thank you! Types of phages are important because only specific kind of phage can infect specific types of bacteria. The host ranges of the phage are different depending on what cluster the phage is from and so on.

  3. Hi Daanish, great job with your poster and presentation, I really appreciated how you clearly explained any terms that would otherwise be foreign to those not involved in phage research. In your future directions section, you mentioned using programs to determine protein structures. I am wondering if there is any other ways that technology could improve your research?

    1. Thank you for your feedback! One software in particular that could be used to improve my research is the phamerator, which is a program that compare phage genomics, genes, and genes products to show similarity in phages.

  4. Hey there! Good job! I was wondering why the cloudy appearance of your plaques indicated that you were dealing with a temperature/lysogenic phage?

    1. Great question! The cloudy ring indicates the lysogenic lifecycle and the clear center indicates the lytic cycle because the bacteria had been killed. Therefore, it can be concluded that my plaques are temperate because it shows both the lytic and lysogenic cycles.
