This I'd something were thinking of and are trying to look for in sequence data, or see if we can build it using synthetic biology. Thinking more transcytosis mechanisms than BAM

So 4 years ago joined my lab. We began discussing open questions she could tackle, starting with the 'easiest' so she could learn the ropes. We thought: how about asking whether coevolution between a phage virus and its bacterial host happens differently in vivo?

Any advice on how to store phages/ viruses? I know there are quite a few methods for long-time storage but I'd like to hear your advice. Thanks!😀 ...and @ many more

Easiest way that our lab uses is to make a high titre lysate. You can clean this via ultra-centrifugation into SM buffer, and store long term at 4C. Option to add 0.1 volume chloroform if concerned about sterility. Most phages will keep for decades using this approach

we have P1 phage, will spot plate it tomorrow to make sure it is still viable, then happy to send you an aliquot

I don't think we have P1 phage, but let me double check today. I'll PM you if we do have it
