Travelling to Vietnam to attend Summer School in “Molecular phylogenetics”

I am excited to visit Vietnam, and i am thankful to Computational Biology for Infectious Diseases (CBID) team for giving me this wonderful opportunity. The purpose of visit is to attend “Summer School of Computational Biology for Infectious Diseases”. The event will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam from September 18-25, 2016.


The CBID summer school is organizing the training students, researchers and professionals working on infectious diseases to share basic concepts and hands-on experience in quantitative analyses of data.

Five parallel thematic groups (mentioned below) of 15 students will run for a week. I am taking part in “Molecular phylogenetics”.

  • Molecular phylogenetics
  • (Meta)genomics
  • Population genetics
  • Transmission dynamics
  • Epidemics forecasting

If you are interested to know more about this training and each thematic groups. please visit the official website of CBID here
