African BioGenome Project (AfricaBP) Open Institute Southern Africa Regional Workshop 2024

What is it about?

This five-day workshop aims to establish and connect scientists and institutes that are role players in the African BioGenome Project (AfricaBP), create awareness and galvanize institutions and researchers at the regional level to drive the vision and objectives of AfricaBP. Days 1-2 are symposium-style hybrid workshops, focusing on current understanding on biodiversity genomics and bioeconomy across Southern Africa. Days 3-5 are practical-based, hands-on in-person practical workshops focusing on sample collections, stakeholders and policy-related engagements, molecular biology and genome sequencing using several technology platforms but not limited to PacBio Hi-Fi, Illumina, Oxford Nanopore, and Eppendorf.

Who can attend?

Anyone interested in genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology and related fields.


From 9th – 13th September 2024 (08:00 – 17:00 SAST time). First two days are presentation sessions (hybrid); while the last three days are practical sessions (in-person only).


The hybrid workshop will be held at the University of South Africa (UNISA), Kgorong, Muckleneuk, Pretoria, South Africa, and virtually through Zoom. It will also be live-streamed on the AfricaBP YouTube and Twitter channels.
