Dr Stephanie Lo is a scientist at Sanger Institute. She oversees the Global Pneumococcal Sequencing (https://www.pneumogen.net/gps/) by setting overall scientific strategy, communicating with collaborators, and delivering outputs through publications and presentations. Funded by the Gates Foundation, the GPS project sequenced ~26,000 pneumococcal isolates collected around the globe, especially from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), to investigate the adaptive changes that mediate the emergence, expansion and persistence of pneumococcal lineages after the introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines. She is particularly interested in analysing large-scale of genomic data to generate evidence to inform future pneumococcal vaccine design. She is also actively involved in delivering bioinformatics training and capacity building to researchers in LMICs. Twitter: @stephlo_lo Webpage: https://www.sanger.ac.uk/person/lo-stephanie/

Workshop 02: Tools for Genomic Data Analysis and Visualisation

Session Type
On-site Pre-Symposium Workshop
Sun, 19.06.2022
Session Time
09:00 - 16:00
Grand Ballroom West
Session Description
A highly interactive hands-on workshop that aims for you to understand the basic principles of WGS strain characterization and subsequent typing analysis and data visualization. During the workshop, participants will be able to upload genomic sequences to local and web-based platforms and use analysis tools to characterize, visualize, and explore genomic data with metadata variables.
Target audience: Public health professionals, clinicians and researchers

Please note: All ISPPD-12 Workshops are highly interactive and designed to allow at least 25% active learning for the maximum registrants anticipated.
