H3ABioNet Project

February 7, 2018

BHP is part of the H3ABioNet, a bioinformatics network which seeks to develop bioinformatics capacity in Africa to analyze genomics data. The network is part of the Human, Heredity and Health in Africa (H3) initiative funded by the NIH and Wellcome Trust to support contemporary research on genomics and environmental determinants of common diseases in African populations. Through the network, BHP has access to leading experts in bioinformatics, a fulltime bioinformatician supporting bioinformatics work at BHP, and a PhD studentship in bioinformatics.
