Sampling in the Ganges Delta Region in Bangladesh

From April 29 to May 24, 2014, Yan and Tania went to Bangladesh for an extensive sampling of environmental isolates of Vibrio cholerae from water from two different coastal areas (Kuakata and Mathbaria) in the Ganges Delta region of Bangladesh. It was a great experience, and they are thankful for the support of Dr. Munirul Alam and his team from the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh.
