Jumbo Phage collaboration featured by UC San Diego Today, HHMI

Work from our collaboration with the labs of Elizabeth Villa, Kevin Corbett, and Rommie Amaro was featured in an article from UC San Diego Today and a press release by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). This work investigates formation of the phage nuclear shell during 201φ2-1 infection of Pseudomonas chlororaphis (Laughlin & Deep et al. Nature 2022).

Congratulations to first authors Tom & Amar, and Pogliano lab co-authors Amy, Eray, Kanika, Erica, and Emily!
