Well I decided I should face my fears and finally do this blog post thing. I was trying to wrap my head around the whole concept of phage and I came across this site which I think summed it up pretty well.
Perhaps it is a bit below the level we are aiming for but I think the video of the bacteria being killed by the phage gives a good insight to what is actually happening on our agar plates, and even though it has been sped up, it shows just how fast these phages can infect, take control of and destroy the bacteria cells. These are some highly effective killers we are handling!
Furthermore if any of you are having trouble with the scale of phage there is a neat little interactive tool that can let you zoom in and out with references to other well known small things.
