A hat trick for publications this month! Well done to lab members for their publications; Ana, Rebekah & Wearn-Xin for their work on markerless gene editing in Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Rene & Rachel for their Neisseria review and Giulia for her work undertaken with collaborators in Rome on the Shigella virulence plasmid.

Lab members celebrating CNY

Tang lab celebrated Chinese New Year with a great group lunch. Lab members also managed to catch up for lunch in Hangzhou!

We were really pleased to welcome final year PhD student Rachel to the lab for a two week visit. Rachel joins us from Nottingham Trent University and is the student of past Tang lab member; Dr. Gareth McVicker.
