Our study, focused on classroom-based research at the introductory level and using the Phage Genomics course as the model, shows evidence that first-year students doing research learn the process of science as well as how scientists practice science. A preliminary but notable outcome of our work, which is based on a small sample, is the change in student(More)
Mycobacteriophages represent a genetically diverse group of viruses that infect mycobacterial hosts. Although more than 80 genomes have been sequenced, these still poorly represent the likely diversity of the broader population of phages that can infect the host, Mycobacterium smegmatis mc(2)155. We describe here a newly discovered phage, Marvin, which is a(More)
Undergraduate research has shown that the incorporation of hands-on, inquiry-based activities produces a superior learning environment for all disciplines (Lopatto 2004; Seymour et al. 2004). The majority of undergraduate research takes place outside of the normal classroom laboratory experience, although embedding undergraduate research into courses is(More)
