This program is designed to address key challenges in Biomedical research by implementing project-based learning using AI Guided tools & platforms built to enable biologists to understand data-driven research.
The Bioinformatics in Africa initiative aims to enable and scale biomedical, Clinical, Biotechnology, and Agriculture research using Big Data analysis amongst the students, researchers & faculty to develop a research ecosystem and the capacity to address some of the challenging healthcare issues of the continent.
Africa holds a special place in human evolution because it is the location where a number of hominin lineages, including modern humans, arose. Despite its crucial role in our evolutionary past, Africa remains largely underrepresented in genetic studies. In this full program, we will learn about NGS data and its application in Translational Research, apply methods to real datasets, and understand the logic of the analysis. After registering students will have access to start exploring the innovative research & educational platforms, live sessions, a Team of experts Ph.D. in Biomedical research & student mentors.
This program is designed for anyone interested, including beginners that do not have a background in bioinformatics. Basic Biology understanding and a Biochemistry and Biotechnology background are preferable. This program is a great fit for faculty who can translate knowledge and skills gained into their teaching and research. The students who have participated in our previous 1-week program are both undergraduate and postgraduate students in the basic medical sciences, anatomy, biochemistry, physiology, biological sciences, medical laboratory science, environmental health science, and other related health sciences, molecular biology and Genomics, and agricultural science.
