BIO 285 Phage Discovery Laboratory

1 Credit

Students will isolate their own bacteriophages, and in the process gain a mastery of wet lab microbiological techniques. Students will be able to describe bacterial viruses, their ecological importance, life cycle, and the purification process. Bacteriophages are a proven starting point for student genome analysis since they are plentiful, highly diverse, easily isolated directly from nature. This course has been approved as a CORE Honors Science Course.

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 107  / CHEM 117  and BIO 107  /BIO 117  (all with a minimum grade of “C”). Suggested to have both semesters of freshman General Chemistry and General Biology.
