Multi-drug resistant malaria strain spreads in Vietnam, Laos and parts of Thailand

Malaria resistance has been found to have spread rapidly from Cambodia to neighboring countries in Southeast Asia. Using genomic surveillance, researchers detected descendants of one multi-drug resistant malaria strain replacing local parasite populations in multiple countries.

CROPS 2019

This meeting will bring together researchers applying genomic based techniques to crop improvement and plant molecular breeding experts, along with traditional breeders who are interested in applying these techniques within their crops of interest.

The Biology of Genomes

The 2019 meeting will address DNA sequence variation and its role in molecular evolution, population genetics and complex diseases, comparative genomics, large-scale studies of gene and protein expression, and genomic approaches to ecological systems. Both technologies and applications will be emphasized. In addition there will be a special session on the ethical, legal and social implications of genome research.

Working with Pathogen Genomes

This five-day computational course aims to give molecular microbiologists working with bacterial and eukaryotic pathogens a working knowledge of genomic analysis. The course  will take the form of a series of modules covering the fundamental aspects of DNA sequence analysis and exploitation.
