We are now accepting applications to join the 2020 Sydney Summer School in Pathogen Genomics and Global Health

This Summer School aims at young graduates, researchers, clinicians and public health professionals that are interested in translational research the field of public health pathogen genomics and communicable disease control. The program includes a mix of inspiring keynotes and master classes, practical hands-on demonstrations and laboratory visits. We will teach the basics of genomics of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites with epidemic potential and critically examine the approaches to the analysis of genomes in global health context. Hands-on exercises will be organised to illustrate the power of genomics, functional genomics and metagenomics in answering important questions on the assessment of evolution, virulence, transmissibility and drug resistance as well as on detection of outbreaks and deciphering of transmission pathways. The School will also offer opportunities for exchange of ideas and discussions with presenters and fellow participants.
