246.202 Bacteriophage Discovery and Genomics (15 credits)

A course in which students will participate in a "hunt" for new bacteriophages - viruses that target and destroy specific strains of bacteria. Students in this course will isolate, name and sequence a bacteriophage that they discover, while learning about microbiology and practicing the skills needed to work in the field of microbiology. Massey University is one of over 90 institutions that participate in the HHMI Science Education Alliance Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics & Evolutionary Science (SEA PHAGES) programme. Students will learn about this fascinating aspect of the microbial world while building practical laboratory skills and learning how to use state of the art software to analyse genomes. In addition, students in this course will personally and publicly hone their written and oral communication skills.
