October SEA-PHAGES Email

Dear SEA community,

This is our October communication:


If you haven’t already, please post section data to your institution page at (This is a separate request from the section data asked for the PITS study.)


Deadline to make a request for prompt shipping is October 16, 2023. We will begin shipping archive tubes as soon as requests come in. If you are off schedule, you can still request tubes with an additional comment for shipping instructions.

Request your tubes today!


Before you prep lysates for archiving, please read the new improved protocol that contains a new video link here.

Make sure you create any needed phage pages on PhagesDB as soon as possible, as these must be approved before they are included in your Archive Sheet for sample prep.


This month’s meeting is scheduled for October 27, and will feature breakout rooms for updates and discussing your questions on Phage Discovery protocols, GENES protocols, and QUBES Resources.

More info available on the program website timeline:


The Phage Genomics workshop for the newest cohort of SEA faculty is scheduled for Dec 4 – 8, 2023. If you instruct (or will instruct) Phage Genomics but have never attended this workshop, you can request to attend using the following link, and we will do our very best to accommodate you. This registration closes October 13.

We hope phage work at your school is going well! We are excited to see what discoveries are made this year!

Our very best, the SEA Team
