Our lab studies the biology and applications of bacteriophages (often simply called “phages”), which are viruses that infect bacteria. These organisms are abundant in the environment and are a major predator of bacteria in natural systems. Because phages naturally infect and kill bacteria, there is considerable interest in using them as antimicrobials to control bacterial populations, particularly pathogenic bacteria. In order to effectively use phages, we also study the basic biology of how phages interact with their host cells by using a combination of genomic and genetic approaches.

We are recruiting!

We are looking for talented and motivated students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels that can drive exciting new projects in phage biology. Contact Jason Gill for more information.
