Introductory Phage Papers

| posted 01 Sep, 2015 15:56
I remember several people mentioning good research or introductory phage articles that they have their students read at the intro to this course. I can't, however seem to find in my notes what they were! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Stephanie

Hi Stephanie,

I moved your question to the "Papers" forum since it seems more at home here.

One source to check out is the PhagesDB "PubGroups". These are groups of publications that share some theme. The "Faculty Favorites" are papers that come with recommendations by SEA-PHAGES faculty members.

This page on seaphages.org also has papers that have been authored in part by SEA-PHAGES undergrads or faculty.

Finally, here are just a few direct suggestions that might be good for getting students' feet wet.

The secret lives of mycobacteriophages. (Review article.)

Evolutionary relationships among diverse bacteriophages and prophages: all the world's a phage.

Imbroglios of viral taxonomy: genetic exchange and failings of phenetic approaches

Hi Stephanie,

As long as you're using it in line with the disclaimers on the first page, we should be fine sharing it with you (and others) directly.

Here it is!
