Southern African Human Genome Programme Workshops
These workshops are aimed at building capacity for human genome research in South Africa. As you will see from the note below, there is space for a limited number of participants, but we would like to give people the opportunity to apply, especially those from institutions that were not part of the original collaboration (UP, Wits, UCT, US, UL, UWC, ARC).
Please find attached the outlines for the two workshops providing information on the objectives and outcomes.
