Unformatted text preview: Bacteriophages could potentially be used to get rid of certain bacteria that cause different diseases. Felix dHerelle was one of the first to discover bacteriophages. In 1910 he saw clear spots (plaques) on a bacteria lawn, however scientist Edward Twort was credited for the independent discovery of phages at the same time. In our experiment we will discover, manipulate, and sequence a new phage. This phage will likely contain new genes and new gene arrangements, and the data that is collected will be used by other scientists to explore a variety of research areas (NGRI, 2011).
