The most thoroughly studied temperate bacteriophage is lambda, which was pulled out of a Paris sewer 50 years ago by Lwoff, Jacob and Monod.
Plaques generated by lambda are typically " turbid " rather than " clear " because after an initial round of lytic growth on rapidly dividing E. coli, there follows an overgrowth of bacteria carrying lambda lysogenically.
The packaged lambda phage can then immediately be combined with E. coli, to introduce the recombinant phage vector efficiently into cells.
