University of Hawai’i at Mānoa

School of Life Sciences


The University of Hawai’i at Mānoa School of Life Sciences is excited to introduce the HHMI SEA-PHAGES (Science Education Alliance – Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science) Program. This is a two-semester, discovery-based, undergraduate research course. In the first semester, students will isolate and characterize new viruses from local soil samples. In the second semester, students will annotate the complete genome of their new viruses and conduct independent bioinformatic research projects based on their virus genomes. In both semesters, students will be required to take an introductory Biology lab and an independent research course.

Are you an incoming student who is interested in biological research? Now is your chance to jump in feet first. To find out more about the program requirements, and how to apply, follow the link below!
