BS 136 - Phage Hunters I
This course is the first in a 2-semester series that will provide students with a hands-on, discovery-based research experience. Using standard microbiological and molecular techniques, students will isolate, purify, and begin characterization of their own, novel bacteriophage. Further genetic characterization will be completed in the subsequent semester. Discoveries will contribute to a national database and may serve as the foundation for scientific publications.
