Plaque NotesThe initial plaques, while being clear, were extremely small. As a matter of fact, they seemed to form a sort of rough texture on the agar, rather than a definite shape. Because of this, the virus sample collected was not circular in shape. The margins of the plaque were rough and appeared to be jagged.

Eventually, the plaques became slightly larger and about three millimeters across for each one.
