To what extent do you think that the phages we have isolated on Mycobacterium smegmatis mc2 155 are reflective of the broader phage population?

In other words, during the process of phage discovery, enrichment, amplification, DNA extraction, and sending samples for sequencing, are there some potential places where we're selecting for some phages over others?
