WORKSHOP ON ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE
The CLIMB-BIG-DATA together with the Public Health Alliance for Genomic Epidemiology (PHA4GE) and the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) will deliver a Workshop on Antimicrobial Resistance on 15th October 2021.
Antimicrobial resistance is a global public health threat and this workshop aims to provide training on the following:
- Use of existing AMR-related databases and resources (including CARD, NCBI, and PATRIC)
- Theory and use of bioinformatics tools to detect AMR genes from genomes (e.g., AMRFinderPlus)
- How to compare and systematically report results from AMR genomics using hAMRonization
- A practical introduction to bioinformatics workflows for AMR genomics
