BS 137 - Phage Hunters II

This is the second course in a 2-semester series that will provide students with a hands-on, discovery-based research experience. In part one of the course students isolated, purified and had 2 bacteriophages sequenced. This semester students will analyze and annotate those DNA sequences using several computational programs. The sequence will then be published in the national GenBank database and may serve as the foundation for scientific publication. The semester will culminate with students completing an independent research project.
