I am unaware on any Ph.D. programs that focus on polyphasic microbiology. Take that with a grain of salt as I am not familiar with most graduate programs. However, in my experience, most microbiology departments have general programs with each faculty member having expertise in a specific sub-field. My advice would be to do a little research to see who is working in the field of polyphasic taxonomy, and contact them to tell them that you are interested in pursing a Ph.D. in that field.
