Title: Characterizing a Novel Class of Infectious Particles: Phagelets in Mycobacteria Hosts

Project Description: 

My research addresses the question what is the function and abundance of a novel class of phage-like infectious particles infecting mycobacterial hosts in the soil environment? Phages are viruses that specifically infect bacteria. A phagelet is similar to a phage but has an incomplete genome containing some phage genes and many novel genes. My research focuses on characterizing existing phagelets and isolating additional phagelets. This research is important for understanding the dynamics behind phage infection and microbial systems. This is important because it relates to mycobacterial infections such as tuberculosis and it provides insight into new genetic engineering tools.
