Team #1 Name: Phantom Phages
Team #1 Members: Elisha Anne Santos, Emma Yang, Kaley Qin, Cristal Santaolaya
Naming NotesThe plaques formed by the phage are clear, circular, and with sharp edges. When there are multiple PFU on a bacterial lawn, everything looks like a piece of swiss cheese. Thus, we named her MissSwiss. Also, all of the members on this team really like cheese. :)
