Description 
An investigativebased General Chemistry laboratory course in which students will partner with Howard Hughes Medical Institute to discover bacteriainfecting viruses in an attempt to find new cures for diseases and antibiotic resistance. Students will work in the lab in a research group setting to discover, isolate and purify new bacteriophages from the environment, characterize the chemical environment in which they are found, obtain microscopic images of the phages, and isolate the phage DNA. Focus will be on experimental design, documentation, data interpretation, and laboratory safety.
