Thousands of undergraduate students contribute to new study that broadens understanding of genetic diversity of bacteriophages.
In the last five years, 4,800 students at 73 colleges and universities nationwide have taken HHMI's Science Education Alliance (SEA) Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science (PHAGES) research course.
The Science Education Alliance is celebrating a major milestone with a scientific publication. The 192-author article is based on the work of students and faculty at the first 12 schools that offered its phage genomics course.
HHMI today announced new grants totaling $79 million that will help universities strengthen undergraduate and precollege science education nationwide.
A handful of Pittsburgh high school and college students who isolated and characterized 30 new viruses that infect bacteria have co-authored a research article in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
HHMI researchers have identified a gene that enables mycobacteria to form biofilms.
