Festival of Ideas

This page is part of the work done by the Thomas lab Marvellous Microbes team during my PhD. More information about Marvellous Microbes can be found here.


On 6th and 7th June, researchers from the Department of Biology hosted Marvellous Microbes as part of York’s Festival of Ideas. Here, you can find all of the agar art and the mouth/skin swabs produced across the sessions!
