Bacteriophages, viruses that exclusively infect bacteria, exhibit a startling range of traits despite their simple structure. We explored a subset of F1 bacteriophages (Tootsiepop, Piper2020, Seagreen) with a unique region in the left arm tail portion of the genome that we believed to confer expanded host range, as well as a right arm section that contains the immunity cassette and influences lysogenic activity. We did not observe expanded host range in our phages, but the phages did exhibit unique growth patterns that point to novel lysogenic activity.
