- Display Note: Abstract: Our purpose in this research initiative was to isolate, purify, and archive information on multiple Mycobacteriophages. By collecting soil samples, we were able to isolate bacteriophage and begin studying and purifying the phage assays. After determining that the phage was pure, we were able to analyze the phage through electron microscopy as well as a DNA restriction digest analysis using numerous restriction enzymes. The high titer lysates, DNA samples, and information about the phage behavior in our experiments are archived in order for research to be continued and expanded in the field of phage genomics and genetic recombination. The findings of this research initiative could potentially lead to more discoveries and growth in genomics.
