ONE HEALTH OMICS WEBINAR
2-DAY WEBINAR on One Health in the Era of OMICS on October 4-5, 2021, 3PM - 6PM
via Zoom and Facebook
Omics technology is an emerging tool in biology and biotechnology wherein diverse new approaches are utilized to study and understand biological systems in large batches of data. In the Philippines, use of omics technology has been gaining ground as access to it has been more of reach particularly in health research.
The One Health approach tries to understand traits and characters by looking not only at one system, but the interconnection between systems, i.e. humans, animals, environment, etc. The shift from traditional investigatory approaches to the newer one health approach requires careful understanding of sampling, population structure, and statistical considerations.
This 2-day webinar will showcase presentations from various experts in the country and abroad in the field of infectious diseases in humans and animals, bioinformatics, mathematical modeling, drug discovery, and genomics epidemiology.
The speakers include researchers and scientists from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in London (LSHTM), England, and from the Philippines. The KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Prof. Taane Clark and Prof. Martin Hibberd of London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
This 2-DAY WEBINAR is funded by: Newton Agham Fund; Supported by British Council; In collaboration with London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, Philippine Genome Center Mindanao, University of the Philippines Mindanao, and PSBMB – Mindanao Chapter; and with Monitoring Agency: DOST PCHRD.
