Success at last!

Published by at 12:45 am under Uncategorized

Today in lab, we looked at our samples and although there was a widespread problem of contamination, about 9 or 10 of us were able to form/find phage and plaque colonies! The old host was unsuccessful (Mycobacterium Smegmatus) this time, but for some reason (likely a better round of bacteria) a few of us (myself included) were able to cultivate some phage! This is really exciting because I was starting to question what we were going to do, since we had already attempted twice to no concrete avail. However, now, we are able to begin the isolation and purification process of the phages.
