Explore the fascinating world of metagenomics and bioinformatics

From a team of experienced MGI and ARC scientists and bioinformatic experts
This two week onsite and hands-on workshop is designed for researchers, students, and professionals in South Africa who are interested in NGS, Metagenomics and life science applications including microbiology, ecology, human health, and agriculture, and understanding the structure and function of microbial communities using metagenomic sequencing on MGI DNBseq technology.
Want to learn about cutting-edge sequencing technologies and data analysis methods?
MGI in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Council in South Africa are awarding 8 students with a chance to experience a 2-week hands-on workshop in Metagenomics to equip students on the entire metagenomic sequencing workflow from sample to analysis, focused sessions on bioinformatics and training on patented DNBseq technology,

Workshop Address: The Agricultural Research Council's Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute campus, the Biotechnology Platform (ARC-BTP), Pretoria, South Africa

Workshop Dates: 24 July - 04 August 2023

Closing dates for applications: 26 June 2023
