Plaque NotesThroughout most of the experiment the plaques produced had a temperate appearance with lytic centers. They ranged from a size of 1.5 mm to a maximum of 4.0 mm. During the 7th dilution assay there was an extreme change in size from primarily 3.0-4.0 mm sized plaques to .25 mm. This was thought to be caused by difficulties with top agar, but the plaques remained around that size and only grew to about 1.0 mm. The phage also took on a more lytic appearance with almost unidentifiable halos.
