Abstract


The obtaining of images by lytic action of bacteriophage T4 on the Escherichia coli bacterial lawn is considered. Methodical aspects of the approach are discussed, namely, use of different stencil types, total and partial staining of obtained image by different dyes. The perspectives of the practical use are proposed namely restriction of the action of microorganisms in out-of-theway places etc.

Keywords


bacteriophage T4, Escherichia coli, lytic action, lytic zone
