  • Northern State University (NSU) has received the distinction of participating in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Science Education Alliance’s Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science (SEA-PHAGES) program beginning in the fall. After learning about this program at the 2017 SD EPSCoR investigator’s meeting, Dr. Jon C. Mitchell, associate professor of biology, spearheaded the effort to bring this unique opportunity to NSU’s biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics departments, specifically the biotechnology program. Electron microscopy services for NSU’s program will be provided by the Transmission Electron Microscopy Facility at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. More
