Plaque NotesThe phage seems to generate two different plaque morphologies. There are large, clear plaques that are about 0.5 centimeters. There are also smaller, almost "pin-point" type plaques. After 4 rounds of serial dilution, it was determined that the phage clears in these 2 different methods, with the large morphologies being more common.
