tRNAScanSE is Offline due to California Wildfires

As of August 21, 2020, tRNAScanSE is offline because it is hosted at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and their campus is facing a mandatory evacuation due to the ongoing wildfires. In the meantime, you can still use Aragorn for tRNA purposes. We'll update when we have more information.

Considerations for Implementing SEA-PHAGES in 2020 - 2021

SEA Faculty met virtually, in groups of 5 – 10, to discuss ideas for implementing SEA-PHAGES this coming academic year, focusing on strategies for maintaining safe distancing, preparing for the possibility of being fully online, and maintaining high student engagement. Below is a summary of suggested considerations, the majority of which are written in the context of Phage Discovery, though many are also applicable for Phage Genomics.
