Session Description
During this session we plan to discuss 3 main themes, namely:
1. Understand how public health agencies have been adopting pathogen genomics to improve outbreak, surveillance and research efforts;
2. Identify the value and challenges of incorporating next-generation sequencing into sample processing;
3. Discuss quality management and steps towards accreditation when using genomic data;
At the end of the session, attendees should be able to go away with ideas to set-up or improve their current systems. They should also have established some contacts/networks for onging assistance or collaboration (if needed).
