Public invited to help tackle antibiotic resistance

An online project has been launched to study antibiotic resistance in Tuberculosis (TB) with the help of the public.

The project website,, shows volunteers images of a series of small, circular wells, each containing M.tuberculosis (the bug that causes TB) and a different dose of an antibiotic. The users are then asked to identify in which wells the bacteria have grown, helping the researchers to determine which antibiotics are effective at killing each specific strain of TB.
