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 fantastic opportunity. The purpose of the visit is to attend “Summer School of Computational Biology for Infectious Diseases” to study “Molecular phylogenetics. ( ” The event will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam, from September 18-25, 2016.


The CBID summer school is organizing the training of 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

After completing summer school, I plan to visit some of the popular travel destinations in Hanoi and sail on a cruise in Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and popular travel destination.

If time permits, I have a plan to visit Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and the One Pillar Pagoda before returning to Nepal.
