|Discovery Notes|| I noticed that my phage was very incompatible with other forms of bacteria.|
However, the peculiar and probably most unique aspect of my phage was that it was able to efficiently lyse the bacteria B. Anthracis Sterne.
Since the majority of the class's bacteria was unable to lyse it, I want to say that although my phage has a narrow host range, it has a unique host range in which bacteria it can lyse.
However, my phage can't be functioning under an endolysin cycle because if that were to happen, the physical plaque would not appear on the plate. (CLASS HOST RANGE RESULTS)
|Naming Notes||There's a children novel which was loosely based off of the hit movie "Marley and Me." In this novel, the toddler is mentioning about looking for Marley and they are unable to say the phrase so instead say the phrase "BaBooBoo Waddy!" My name is BaBooBoo and another classmate in my section with a similar phage has the name Waddy.|
