Many people have contributed to phage work in the VCU Phage Lab! The students listed below discovered a novel phage that was sequenced and/or participated in genome annotation and are listed as coauthors for a genbank file and genome announcement. (Students who only took Phage Discovery I are not included below, and students who take Phage Discovery II first are included in the list for the corresponding spring semester to document their contribution to genome annotation)

The 2016-2017 students below contributed to the discovery and annotation of Bacillus Phages Janet, OTooleKemple52, AaronPhadgers, Bubs, PPIsBest and Zainny, posted to Genbank in August 2017. Genome Announcements will be linked.
