NC State offers phage hunters as a one semester "Phage Discovery" course - phage isolation, genome sequencing and genome annotation - in one fall semester. One faculty member and one TA deliver the course through the NCSU Biotechnology Program. Primary literature is reviewed, oral presentations are made, and an optional opportunity to present at the spring Undergraduate Research Symposium is provided. And it's all fun!
