One Million Classifications

Thanks to the hard work and persistence of all our volunteer scientists, BashTheBug reached one million classifications around noon on Tuesday 2 October!

To celebrate, we’ve made a photo mosaic of images sent in by the volunteers. In addition to photos, you’ll see a lot of cats, several different cakes, some flowers, a couple of bugs, two drawings, and a even a homemade M. tuberculosis bacterium.

Thank you everyone for helping us reach this significant milestone, and here’s to our next million as we work together to tackle tuberculosis!

This achievement was picked up by the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.
