Population Explosion: Modeling Phage Growth

Population Explosion: Modeling Phage Growth

How is the relationship between phages and their bacterial hosts like that of predators and prey? How does this relationship differ? What are the factors that contribute to phage production in the cell? What can the phage concentration in a high titer lysate tell us about both of these populations? We can investigate these questions and more with an Excel spreadsheet model for phage growth. * explore a multiple parameter model of population growth in bacteriophages that demonstrates interdependence with the population of bacterial hosts
