This project focuses on identifying notably conserved DNA sequences that differ between generalist and specialist bacteriophage isolated from soil samples. This multistep process involves bacteriophage isolation, host range determination, genetic sequencing, and DNA annotation. The results obtained will help identify phage characteristics associated with “broad spectrum” activity against bacteria.
