Functional Genomics Consortium

A group of researchers, that included DrosAfrica members Isabel Palacios, Lola Martín-Bermudo and Marta Vicente, has met recently in Nairobi (Kenya) to discuss the possibility of creating an African Consortium on Functional Genomics. During the discussions it was clear the necessity for identifying high standing African researchers, and a unified theme for the consortium as well as the appropriate funding and possible stakeholders. A detailed report was drafted at the end of the meeting.
The meeting was possible thanks to the generous funding provided by the Queen Mary University of London.
