The Ugandan team is ready. We arrived late Thursday night – had a planning meeting Friday morning  and we were in Naomi’s field by 2pm Friday. We then started a CTAB extraction and began finding a suitable computer. The computer was our biggest challenge. We first started with a MacMini 2TB hard drive 16gb ram – after 6 hours of struggling with help from both Anders in Australia and Monolina from nanopore we had to leave because the generator was going off.  Monolina found out the older Mac does not have the drivers for the minknow.  So we found a windows machine with 300gB of space – no SSD drive- but we are using it anyway.  Yesterday we started the run- and now we wait!

Oh and massive shout out to the delivery magicians- Norman Mugisa & John Mayombwe.
