As an undergraduate in the Hatfull lab, I am working on isolating and characterizing newly discovered phages on a variety of hosts including Microbacterium foliorum and Corynebacterium glutanicum. Currently, we have almost 3,000 sequenced phages, and I am looking to expand that number through phage hunting on environmental samples from the greater Pittsburgh area.
