DNA Master Under Construction

Dear All,

NCBI is upgrading its security protocols for programs that contact its servers. DNA Master uses the NCBI servers for both BLAST data and for auto-annotations. At the current time, we have been unable to upgrade DNA Master to use the new protocols, which means auto-annotations and BLASTing through DNA Master will fail.

We ...

New Actinobacteriophage Clusters

Dear SEA-PHAGES Faculty,

Following the expansion of our collective phage interests beyond those of Mycobacterium smegmatis mc2 155, SEA-PHAGES has collected a number of new phages on different hosts within the phylum Actinobacteria---in no small part due to your efforts! We are excited about a major push to explore this much broader landscape of microbial ...

A Continuum of Diversity

Our latest paper describing the genomics of 627 bacteriophages known to infect a single host is available in eLife! The phages were collected throughout the past seven years as part of the SEA-PHAGES program by more than 2600 undergraduates. Read about our work in the HHMI News or read the paper itself at eLife.
