We were thrown a curve ball in 2020, but didn’t let the pandemic stop us from our training activities. We participated in a number of online courses this year – and one particular highlight was virtually traveling to eastern Africa to conduct a course in genomics and bioinformatics. During our week-long course CZ Biohub Rapid Response teamed up with colleagues at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to introduce the use of next-generation sequencing and analytical tools for studying the cause, source, and dynamics of infectious disease, and for utilization in disease outbreak response efforts.
Congratulations to the lab team at the Child Health Research Foundation (CHRF) in Dhaka, Bangladesh for receiving their brand new sequencer!
