A team from Luke Natural Resources Institute Finland has collaborated with Centre for Biotechnology and Bioinformatics to steer research in natural resources and food security in the country through a programme called FoodAfrica.  

Science Units in the College of Biological and Physical Sciences have been called upon to participate in the project which will implement information technology precision farming. The units can provide expertise in robotics and micro controlled irrigation system (Physics), health informatics and mobile technology (Computing), aero statistics (Mathematics) and climate change resilience (Institute of Climate Change), noted the Principal of the College, Prof. Bernard Aduda.

Renovation work in one of the five(5) laboratories at the Centre for Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (CEBIB) began today.

This effort is aimed at revamping CEBIB’s research space to enhance scientists’ working experience and to accommodate the increasing demand for research based at the Centre.

University personnel and students utilising the lab are informed that the facility will be under minor renovations for not more than a week. Research staff/students who anticipated to utilise the lab are therefore advised to consult CEBIB Senior Technologists Mr. Edwin Rono and/or Ms. Anne Owiti for alternative working space to avoid disruption of their research activities. The Centre management regrets for any inconvenience as a result of the process.
