Leafcutter Ants and their Antibiotics

The leafcutter ant project is a collaboration between Matt Hutchings, a molecular microbiologist at UEA and Barrie Wilkinson, a natural products chemist at the John Innes Centre. Our scientists will be at the 2016 Norwich Science Festival  on 29th and 30th October. Come and meet the team in the Sir Isaac Newton 6th Form college, opposite the entrance to the Forum car park on Bethel Street.
