Pathogen Genomics COSI

Afripathogen CoSI Statement:

The Pathogen Genomics Community of Special Interest (COSI) is a special interest group of the ASBCB. We focus on the bioinformatics of human and non-human pathogens, ideally with a genome <1Gb. We aim to promote best practices, use of various bioinformatics tools and web interfaces, workflows and pipelines. We also provide an ideal space to discuss challenges faced in our different settings. We hold regular online meetings which consist of presentations and break-out sessions to enhance networking.
