Discovery NotesWe named the Werner phage after Werner Heisenberg, specifically because of his famous uncertainty principle. While working with the Werner phage we were always unable to determine whether our solutions actually had any phage particles in them. Without this confirmation, we were always uncertain whether or not our experiments would succeed.

Plaque NotesThe plaques have a bullseye pattern where the edges are more turbid, and the centers are clearer. The plaques are also ringed in a red pigment and are approximately 3.96mm in diameter. The plaques displayed in the included image were grown on a 100mm plate and were produced using a phage solution diluted to a concentration of 10^5.
