Plaque NotesEmWilla's plaques are bullseye-like, with a clear middle and turbid rim, showing evidence for lysogenic phage. They are medium-sized, and in early rounds of purification, showed both bigger and smaller plaques, but evened out through following rounds.
In lysogen testing, EmWilla showed good evidence for lysogen formation.
