Our second calendar year and it has been a busy one. Highlights of the year include

- meeting a volunteer for the first time
- having our logo crocheted
- being inspiration for some textiles
- appearing on an Oxford Sparks podcast
- featuring in the Bacterial World exhibition at the Oxford Museum of Natural History
- appearing as part of a series of talks on TB
- having 15,000 volunteers try BashTheBug in one day after the Zooniverse emailed everyone
- showing BashTheBug to the public at events at Oxford Brookes and the Oxford Museum of Natural History.
In 2019 our first scientific papers will appear about how BashTheBug is helping the CRyPTIC project create an accurate dataset of the antibiotic susceptibility of thousands of clinical TB samples collecting around the globe and how we can use this to infer what genetic variation confers resistance.
