Paul Hyman, Department of Biology and Toxicology, gave both a talk and a poster presentation at the 22nd Evergreen International Bacteriophage Biology meeting held in Olympia, Wash., earlier this month.  He also chaired one of the meeting sessions.  The talk, titled "Is more better? Use of multiple hosts in phage isolation," described some recent results he and student researcher Julia Owens, Biology/French major, obtained while isolating bacteriophages, viruses that kill bacteria, from soil.  The poster, titled "Broad host range – lessons from the literature," presented a literature survey he and AU alum Alexa Ross, Toxicology 2017, completed to further explore methods of bacteriophage characterization that they had studied and described in a paper published in 2016.
