Highlights from 2019 – a busy year for the Hall lab!
Join the Hall Lab at this year’s Summer Science Exhibition Monday 2 July – Sunday 8 July in London.
Four members of the Hall Lab, one science communication consultant and a psychologist, were invited to the join the year 5 class at Cringleford Primary School for a fun morning of science.
I am happy to announce that my first-authored original research article was published at the end of 2017 in Frontiers in Microbiology entitled: Probing genomic aspects of the multi-host pathogen Clostridium perfringens reveals significant pangenome diversity, and a diverse array of virulence factors.
In this publication, we have optimised a protocol for profiling the microbes present in faecal samples from preterm infants using DNA sequencing via an approach called 16S rRNA gene meta-taxonomic profiling.
We have recently published a journal article in Genome Biology and Evolution that describes 5 novel Clostridium bacterial strains that we isolated as part of a wider Hall Lab study, examining the microbiota of preterm infants (BAMBI).
Festival day arrives plus we have a very exciting announcement!
Earlier this year the Hall lab started an exciting new public engagement project, funded by the Wellcome Trust and entitled Me and my microbiome. Read part four of the blog series here on how the project is developing!
