CEBIB Training Facility

Dr. Linda M. Murungi, explains to the inductees on the importance of active participation in CEBIB Journal Club & Seminars.

 

On Tuesday, October 15, 2015, the Centre for Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (CEBIB) inducted all national and international postgraduate students enrolled for the Masters programmes in the Academic Year 2015/2016. The orientation exercise is conducted at the beginning of each academic year to acquaint new students to the Centre programmes, services and also to provide tips on embarking to life in academic and research careers.

This year the new students had the invaluable privilege to learn about the intricate balance of research-based academics and life from a senior student's perspective. The fresh trainees attended sessions that exposed them to the learning resources to empower them in pursuit of knowledge at the Centre. Sessions were also organized for the students to familiarize themselves with the University policies, rules and regulations in the course of their lectures and research at the facility.

Eligibility

African research scientists from any country in sub-Saharan Africa who hold a Master’s or PhD degree, or who are currently enrolled for a Master’s or PhD degree.

Course requirements: basic familiarity with using computers, some programming experience in any language (for example with R, Matlab or SPSS), and a basic familiarity with genetics and genomics techniques. The course will then build on these to introduce participants to more advanced programming and analysis techniques.

The course is very intensive and a strong motivation and drive is required. Students will be selected on the basis of their academic record and written statements concerning their need for NGS bioinformatics training, how they expect to benefit from participating in the course, and how they expect to apply the new skills to their own research. There will be no attendance fee, but the students will be selected based on merit. There are a total of 24 spaces available for the course.

A small number of scholarships available for international students. The students will be selected based on merit, and the selected students will receive economy round-trip airfare from a major international airport in their country to Nairobi. Full Board accommodation will be provided for international students, and meals to local students.
