  1. Great job on your research and poster. What would your plaque morphology look like if your phage had not been lytic, and is it possible for Corndog to undergo a lysogenic lifecycle?

    1. Thank you? If the plaques we were to obtain were not lytic and were temperate the plaques would appear cloudy instead of clear, this would be due to the fact that it wouldn’t have been able to completely kill the bacteria on the plate it would just bind to the prophage. Making the plaques cloudy with the bacteria rather than clear. Because this certain phage is in a certain cluster and is genetically lytic it can not undergo the lysogenic lifestyle.

  2. Good job on your presentation! What was the reasoning for choosing soil near Kittredge Pond?

    1. Thank you! The reason I chose a soil sample near kitterage pond was just because of the connivence of the location, since I live near the pond it was easy to obtain before class started.

  3. Are there any other bacteria that is possible to be used/treated by the Corndog phage?

    1. The corndog phage has been used with some other bacteria. As seen in our future directions there has been some success with testing the corndog phage against E. Coli. There isn’t much research specifically about the corndog phage since there are so many phages in our world.
