Student posts, assignment #2

My students are back with their second writing assignment, which I'll be posting for the next few days.

Bacteriophages to Fight Bacteria: Is this the Beginning of the End?Posted on: April 14, 2008 12:15 PM, by Tara C. Smith, By David Massaquoi

Please note that I produced the segment on bacteriophages for NPR's Science Friday. I have no relationship with Intralytix, nor have I written for the company or its website. I would appreciate your making the necessary corrections. (And I would prefer that this not be posted, if possible.)
Thank you,
