Welcome to the Library Resource Guide for PHAGE HUNTERS
BIOL 0190R (Biology and Medicine)
A research-based lab class for freshmen; both semesters are required. Students will isolate and characterize a bacteriophage viruses found in the soil. Lab work includes isolation and purification of your own phage, DNA isolation and restriction mapping, and EM characterization of your phage. Several phages will be selected for genome sequencing over winter break, and are annotated in the spring.
