Amanda works in Dr. Rodney King’s laboratory where she is defining the requirements for early gene expression in a newly discovered bacteriophage called HK639. The Mosig award honors the memory of Gisela Mosig (1930-2003), a pioneer in the field of phage T4 genetics. This award is sponsored by New England Biolabs, a recognized world leader in the discovery, development and commercialization of recombinant and native enzymes for genomic research.
