Plaque NotesThese plaques are considered large in size with a bullseye morphology implying that the Pika phages may be undergoing both the lytic and lysogenic cycle. Pika may have a lower affinity to the bacterial host which may result in Pika's ability to spread faster and wider, thus generating these large plaques.
