BecA-ILRI Hub advanced genomics and bioinformatics training workshop 2016
August 8, 2016 @ 8:00 am - August 19, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
As part of its capacity building program, the Biosciences eastern and central Africa-International Livestock Research Institute (BecA-ILRI) Hub in collaboration with Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU)will hold a two weeks hands-on training workshop on advanced genomics and bioinformatics from 8–19 August 2016. The workshop aims at providing a learning forum for researchers in genomics (laboratory procedures in Next Generation Sequencing NGS) and bioinformatics (computational methods of analyzing NGS data).
Applications are invited from researchers in eastern and central Africa who require advanced skills in genomics and bioinformatics to support their research. Selection of participants will be based on evidence of productive research and the relevance of genomics and bioinformatic skills in their current work. Individuals who are currently engaged in agricultural research within a national research institute or a university are highly encouraged to apply. Proficiency in molecular biology and genomics ‘wet-lab’ activities is necessary. For more information click on this link: http://hub.africabiosciences.org/media-center/news/497-agb
