Where Science Meets Society

Report evaluates computational genomics skills of African scientists

A new paper co-authored by Illinois and African scientists describes how an African bioinformatics network tested researchers’ ability to perform computational genomics tasks that will aid in studying disease.

Since 2010, the Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) initiative has taken a genomics-centered approach to studying disease susceptibility in Africa.
