Drs. Ndunguru, Alicai and Tairo attended the 2nd annual meeting of the BMGF funded project entitled “West African Virus Epidemiology (WAVE)” last week. At the meeting the team presented the work of CVAP to the WAVE team. This is a big step in bridging east and west Africa in the fight against these devastating cassava viruses. The plan is to move forward as a continent with the Nanopore sequencing.
