Do you believe your phage is a Siphoviridae or a Myoviridae phage?
Did you yourself find the phage? or was it found for you?
My lab partner and I isolated the phage but the sample was collected by the TA due to COVID
To be honest, i’m not sure. I think due to the long tail it would by a siphoviridae
Do you yourself find the phage? Or was it found and the info was given to you?

Based on the plaques that you found in your Petri dish, how did you come to the conclusion that your phage is lytic? In other words, how did the plaque orientation tell you it was a lytic phage?
Because the plaques do not have halos around them and are clear throughout the entire diameter, is why we decided it was a lytic phage.
Do you think your phage would be a good candidate for phage therapy?
I think a lot more research is necessary to determine that and specifically what bacteria it would target but because it is lytic I would say it would have a chance at being considered!
What does the hexagonal-shaped head and bent tail of the bacteriophage indicate about its evolutionary origin?
To be honest, I don’t know. It looks hexagonal from the top down perspective but in reality like all other phage it is an icosahedron shaped head. I think that maybe the bent tail could facilitate better fluid dynamic capabilities when latching onto a moving bacteria. I could be very wrong though.
