The NGS Academy forms part of the Africa CDC Pathogen Genomics Initiative (PGI). This initiative is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Our training initiatives are carried out in partnership with the African Society for Laboratory Medicine (ASLM).

The Africa CDC Pathogen Genomics Initiative NGS Academy aims to develop and deliver a comprehensive training framework for the implementation of next generation sequencing (NGS) for pathogen surveillance. This includes all aspects of NGS, from sample collection to sequencing and analysis to inform public health interventions.

Pathogen genomics and epidemiology training survey

A landscaping exercise is being carried out to identify existing training courses and materials relevant to Pathogen Genomics and Epidemiology. Information about courses and training materials are being collated into a central resource that may be used in training the various role players in this area, most notably in the public health sector. The Survey can be accessed here.
