MRC CLIMB Bioinformatics Workshop at the MRC Unit in The Gambia

A CLIMB delegation, composed of Mark Pallen, Anuradha Ravi, Nicholas Thomson, Andrea Telatin and Lisa Marchioretto (from the Quadram Institute Bioscience -QIB- Norwich) ran a bioinformatics workshop in The Gambia, in collaboration with the MRC Unit in Fajara (The Gambia), that hosted the course.

21 students attended the three-day workshop (January 23-25) and were introduced to bioinformatics, cloud computing, Illumina and Nanopore sequencing, microbial genomics and metagenomics, phylogenesis and phylogenetic trees.

Training activities were run either by QIB CLIMB tutors or by Abdul Karim Sesay, Archibald Worwui and Martin Antonio from the MRC Unit.

The successful workshop confirms the well-established cooperation between the Unit in The Gambia and the MRC-CLIMB project.
