Advanced Sequence analysis and phylogenetics

First MediLabSecure common workshop - October 22nd to 26th, 2018 - Cairo, Egypt

Last October, the MediLabSecure project organized an advanced workshop on "Molecular analysis and Phylogenetics". 15 participants from 11 different countries were welcomed for 5 days in Cairo, Egypt, from October 22nd to 26th, 2018.

For this workshop, focused on basics and advanced Phylogenetics and Phylogeography, members of three different working groups, (Medical entomology, Animal and Human virology) were selected. It was organized by the human virology team and the expert from the Institut Pasteur, with the participation of the coordinators of the other working groups, as well as the invaluable support of Mohammed Ali and Ola Bagato from the Center of Scientific Excellence for Influenza viruses, in Gizeh, Egypt, who offered to host the workshop.

The workshop has been very fruitful and everyone learned a lot on Phylogenetics and Phylogeography. While in Egypt, the team also took the opportunity of the trip to visit the three MediLabSecure contact laboratories in Cairo and Gizeh.

The organizing team would like to thank all the participants for their enthusiasm and hard work as well as the teaching team from the "Genotyping of Pathogens Platform" of the Unit Environment and Infectious risks" and from the C3BI group at Institut Pasteur in Paris.
