First-year students became hands-on virus hunters as part of a yearlong research project at Gettysburg College in partnership with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Science Education Alliance (SEA).
Sixteen new students captured viruses found in soil on campus. In biology courses stretching across two semesters, they isolated some of the viruses that prey on a certain strain of bacteria and analyzed the viruses’ genomes. The students will be listed as authors of new genome contributions to the National Center for Biotechnology Information database.
