Plaques from the bands in the CsCl gradient where phage were purified.

III) Reagants Used

W3110 and BL21 freezer stocks
T4 and T7 phage from CsCl gradient
.2% Agarose Top Agar

IV) Actual Procedure

Infect 500 µL of LB with 1 loop-full of bacterial freezer stock and put on shaker at 37 C for 30 min.
Plate on an LB plate with 4.5 mL top agar.
Spot 5 µL of phage from CsCl gradient onto plate. Do not invert or move. Leave on desktop for one hour.
