Our TZ node won a prize at the World Government Summit Awards in Dubai UAE for applying Nanopore sequencing for smallholder farmers – Congrats. The team was on Tanzanian morning TV.
We successfully trained scientists at University in Eldoret and JKUAT on bioinformatics and running the MINion. Many thanks for the Crawford Fund for supporting the work and also the 69 people who donated to our crowdfunding page! Please see Professor Elizabeth Njenga and Dr. Jayne Binot describing the course and what it means to the team in Kenya [sorry about the wind, I’m not a video pro]
