Hi TWIV crew!
I can’t find a link to the plaque formation gif Nir sent 🙁
Could you share it?
Sorry, the gif he sent is 35 MB and it’s too large for me to post here. –Vincent
Hi. You mentioned archiving issues, well, the TWIV68 plaque assay movies are dead links for Science. And, I can’t find the fluorescently tagged late/early stage visualization of a plaque assay that you described in the episode. Can you help? Or are all three unavailable now? Thanks.
