What is Going On?!?!

I got to check out my plaque assays today and found no phage whatsoever. I can’t really tell if I made a mistake when doing the plaque assays or if I’m cursed. I’m pretty sure it’s the latter. Anyways, I think the issue might have been with the top agar as it was having some issues with solidifying again. This time I picked the plaques from the spot test that I did for these plaque assays instead of the actual “0″ samples so that could make a difference. I made sure I was extra careful while doing the plaque assays and the TA that I made seemed to be working pretty well, especially since it actually solidified. Well…here goes nothing.
