Workshop on MLST determination and analysis from Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates

Postodoc students from Mark Nicol’s lab, Clinton Moodley and Katie Lennard visited JCVI from University of Capetown in August 2016 to participate in a training workshop conducted by Meredith Wright and Stephanie Mounaud on MLST determination and analysis from Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates sequenced by JCVI. The training was part of our GCID Administrative Supplement that aims to extend and support respiratory microbiome analysis in a cohort of South African children that are currently enrolled in an existing H3Africa study of the nasopharyngeal microbiome and respiratory diseases in African children with Mark Nicol.
