CEBIB was founded as a virtual research centre to train postgraduate students at MSc and PhD level in biosciences (biotechnology & Bioinformatics) in the academic year 2005/2006.  The goal of the program is to develop capacity and manpower for the development of Biotechnology.  To date CEBIB is serviced by academic staff from School of Biological Sciences (SBS), School of Computing and Informatics (SCI), School of Mathematics (SOM), Department of Biochemistry and Department of Physics all from the College of Biological Sciences (CBPS) as well as those from the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences (CAVS) and School of Pharmacy.  CEBIB has established abroad based Academic Board that provides oversight on academic and management matters.  To strengthen the Centre’s teaching and research, CEBIB has elicited the participation of visiting academics from international links and participating/collaborating institutions.  With this approach, the University strategy has been to enhance Biotechnology growth and development in Kenya and entire region.

Four (4) Centre of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (CEBIB) graduate students namely, Temitope Arinola, Easter Syombua, Abneel Kaur, and Accadius Lunayo participated in this year’s 7th Annual Biosafety Pre-conferences courses held from the 14th to 15th August 2018 at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies.

The Pre-Conference Training courses focused on Biosafety at the Graduate level so that the young upcoming scientists would be able to take part, and learn about the importance of Biosafety Regulations in regard to the introduction of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in the Kenya. The training included:

  • Food and feed safety assessment of GMOs
  • Emerging technologies for gene manipulation and CRISPR training
  • Role of Bioinformatics in risk assessment of GMOs
  • Regulatory Compliance from Laboratory to Confined Field Trials- Biological and Physical Containment, Genetic and Material Confinement
  • Post- Commercialization Monitoring and Biotechnology and Biotechnology Product Stewardship
  • Biotechnology and Biosafety Communication.
