Attention all phage researchers! You’re invited to participate in an exciting initiative to help establish draft phage bank management guidelines for the community.
To get started, please register your interest by completing this pre-questionnaire.
The process will unfold in stages:
Stage 1 (online survey): Gather input from phage experts worldwide on the key topics. Compiled responses shared with participants for input.
Stage 2 (online survey): Collect input, engage leaders to generate specific questions. Compiled responses shared again, highlighting topics with differing opinions.
Stage 3 (in-person meeting): Join in-person July 2nd (day before VoM 2023 in Georgia), to discuss compiled responses. Virtual options available for remote attendees.
Stage 4 (virtual discussions): Engage in virtual discussions to draft and finalize guidelines. Leaders develop drafts for each topic, hold virtual meetings. Compiled draft shared with group; final version published in a peer-reviewed journal, presented at VoM 2024.
Register your interest now and stay tuned for the first survey.
