A consortium of institutions using bacteriophage discovery and genomics in an original research course for freshmen undergraduate students.
The PHAGE Galaxy is a consortium of institutions using bacteriophage discovery and genomics in an original research course for freshmen undergraduate students. An outgrowth of the Howard Hughes Science Education Alliance, twenty schools have come together to promote this educational and scientific model, develop more easily accessible tools and protocols, and refine a bioinformatic pipeline such that new schools can adopt this model in conjunction with veteran Galaxy partners in their regions.
Through Bio-Link, we hope to make contact with new community colleges and other institutions for whom this educational model fits into their curricular aspirations. We are particularly reaching out to those institutions focusing on biotechnology training, because this course relies on developing skills in biotechnology techniques and bioinformatics, all in the context of finding and analyzing novel viruses of bacteria.
