Update on new developments in pathogen genomics and genetics,focussing on Malaria and TB.
With speakers from:
• The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute: Julian Rayner, Julian Parkhill
• The MRC National Institute for Medical Research: Mike Blackman
Pathogen genome research allows exquisite resolution of complete pathogen genetic information that facilitates a global and systematic approach to understanding disease progression.
Pathogen genome sequencing is accessible to most. Outputs have broad application requiring collaboration between groups with diverse expertise.
Objectives of this one day seminar are:
• To highlight recent advances in pathogen genome research – one stop up-date, focus on malaria and TB.
• To inspire great ideas for collaborative research.
Meeting rooms available for informal lunchtime workshops and discussion groups as required – make the day work for you!
