Well, not YOUR DNA...

If you've been phage hunting with a host that's IN the order Actinomycetales, but is NOT Mycobacterium smegmatis mc2 155, the Hatfull lab would like to sequence your phages' genomes free of charge.  So that means if you have DNA for phages found on Rhodococcus, Arthrobacter, Streptomyces ...
