Phage hunting students publish in PLoS ONE
Date:4/25/2011

phage, fell into cluster K and Uncle Howie, the University City phage in cluster B.

There has been considerable speculation about the mechanisms that give rise to the mosaic genomes and the work also provided some insight into this problem. The clusters of phages indicate lateral transfer of genes or DNA fragments from one phage to another, as well as inheritance by descent.

The WUSTL student authors are: Samantha T. Alford, Alexander G. Anderson, William D. Barshop, Lisa Deng, Vincent J. Huang, Peter M. Hynes, Patrick C. Ng, , Hannah Rabinowitz, Corwin Rhyan, Erika F. Sims, Emilie G. Weisser, and Bo Zhang.

In addition, the graduate student teaching assistant, Anthony Tubbs, and instructors Elgin, Kathy Hafer, Chris Shaffer are co-authors on the paper.

"It is very rewarding to see students so engaged in the work we do in the Phage Hunters course," says Hafer, PhD, senior lecturer in biology. "Many really blossom as they gain confidence in their biology knowledge and research ability. And publication validates their membership in the science community."
