Congratulations!

Congratulations to Fadi Al Naji who recently completed the minor corrections to his PhD. thesis entitled “Isolation and analysis of recombinants from mixed virus infections of poliovirus using next generation sequencing (NGS) and bioinformatics“. Fadi was registered in the School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick and remained there to complete his studies after the rest of the Evanslab moved to St. Andrews. His external examiner was Professor Glyn Stanway, University of Essex (on the left below). Fadi is the good-looking one in the middle.

Here’s what our friends in the Cameron and Vignuzzi labs tweeted …
