BIOL 14505 Year 1 Biology Lab:Phages to Folds

Session Offered:

Fall Credit 2


Concurent pre-requisite:  BIOL 19700 Biol Freshman Honors Seminar


Students will learn how to use bioinformatics to study a gene sequence of their choice from the local SEA-PHAGES program. Students will then use molecular biology and biophysical techniques to characterize their gene product. The goal of each project will be to gain insight into the 3-dimensional fold of each of these mysterious novel phage genes. Students will work in teams but will have their own individual project such that each student will learn the necessary skills to perform scientific experiments starting from the bioinformatics to cloning to purification to structural characterization to communicating their findings to others.
