After completing my Diploma in Biochemistry from Technical University of Kenya, I applied and was accepted into the Centre for Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (CEBIB) 3-months internship programme.

In the multiple facets of being a proficient laboratory technologist and a researcher, I have objectively developed interest in shaping my career founded on accuracy, quality and reliable performance in delivery and pursuit of problem solving information. These are intangible and timeless concepts that cannot be taught in a lecture room; it requires real world experience.

Some of the techniques I have mastered during my internship; Sample collection, aseptic techniques, culture media preparation, culturing micro-organism & isolation, preservation, extraction of nucleic acid and amplification (PCR), spectrophotometry, proteins electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE&NATIVE PAGE), amongst other techniques.

Mr. Willingtone Odhiambo gives a presentation at a workshop held on October 27, 2015 at the Nairobi Surgical Centre, Chiromo Campus. Mr. Odhiambo, holding linear cutter staplers used for bowel resection, and anastomoses, explains to the participants how medical devices interact with the living tissues during surgery. Medical devices featured include sutures, titanium staples, implants and energy platforms such as ultrasonic machines, diathermy amongst others.

The workshop theme was ‘Science of Tissue Management during Surgery’. It was organised by Johnson and Johnson Professional Educational. The event targeted consultant general surgeons from Kisumu, Eldoret, Mombasa and Nairobi. The workshop was facilitated to encourage the adoption of technology during surgery and improvement of patient health.

On 30th November - 5th December, 2015 CEBIB Lecturer and students attended a “Bioinformatics approaches for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)” course hosted at the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE). The course was organized by ICIPE and TReND (Teaching and Research in Natural Sciences for Development in Africa) volunteers and comprised of participants from 45 universities across Africa. NGS analysis topics including de novo genome and transcriptome assembly, ChIP-seq and RNA-seq, rare variant calling and population genetics were taught. Other topics included introduction to R statistical programming language and software development concepts such as databases and version control. The main focus was on the use of freely available data and open source technologies, and encouraging open reproducible research. More information on the annual short course is available at;
