  1. You determined that your phage has a siphoviridae morphology, what does that mean for its functionality in phage therapy?

    1. The type of tails in dsDNA tailed phages can be used for morphology based classification. Siphoviridae have long, flexible, non-contractile tails. The specific mechanism of bacteriophage DNA injection could be useful to consider for phage therapy applications. Generally, DNA is injected through the tail, and into the cytoplasm of the bacterium.

  2. Great presentation! Did you get to name your phage, and if so, what did you name it? #teamlytic
