Hi Debbie, We have been working with M. aichiense phages. We have not generally seen smears; we have seen virtually nothing. We have had a terrible time with low titers and therefore getting sufficient DNA. We have had to use a large liquid culture and PEG precipitation to get even a microgram of nanogram amounts of DNA.We have seen some very low molecular weight smears with some of these including HerbertWM (which we rarely to never have seen before).

What an enormous loss. David's infectious enthusiasm and excitement brightened every Seaphages Symposium; he brought such humor, intelligence, and warmth to all his interactions. My deepest sympathies to David's family, friends, and the Cabrini community. He will be so missed by so many!
