BIOL 303 Q - Phage Bioinformatics (2 credits)


(Prereq: BIOL 302L  or permission of the instructor) Phage Bioinformatics is the second semester in a sequence of inquiry courses designed to provide entry-level science students with an extensive classroom-based research experience. Throughout the semester, students use a number of bioinformatic tools to annotate the genome of a phage obtained during Phage Discovery. In the process, students learn about phage biology, gene structure, and genome organization. The semester culminates with deposition of completed genome annotations into a publicly available DNA sequence database.  S.
