Plaque NotesZephaniah is about 2 mm in diameter and the turbidity is very high. The plaques are small making the burst size small as well. The plaques are all circular, considerably small, and quite blurry. They resemble the shape and size of poppy seeds. Since the plaques are foggy looking, this indicates Zephaniah is temperate. In other words my phage are capable of lysing some fraction of the bacteria it infects and repress the DNA. Because the burst size is small this indicates there is a smaller amount of phage produced per infected bacteria.
