1) Identification and characterization of type D phage/prophage in Las bacteria via purification of phage particles by ultracentrifugation, rolling circle amplification, and cloning; 2) RT-PCR analyses of differential gene expression of selected prophage genes in various Las-infected hosts, especially with and without population D; 3) Investigation of stress effect (chemical and physical conditions) on the genes involved in the phage lytic cycle using qPCR.
