Representative results from Bioscreen C after adding phage Bc431v3 to different strains of Bacillus spp. This phage was able to completely inhibit the growth of B. cereus LJH431 (Full lysis; ++) while it only delayed the growth of B. cereus PAL 25 (Partial lysis; +). On the other hand, Bc431v3 could neither inhibit nor delay the growth of B. subtilis C1004. Control B. cereus LJH431 refers to the growth of B. cereus LJH431 in the absence of phage Bc431v3.
