How does sharing genetic sequence data impact biodiversity science and conservation? The Role of International Collaborations in Resolving Viral Diseases of Cassava in Africa

October 27 @ 15:00 - 17:00

The Role of International Collaborations in Resolving Viral Diseases of Cassava in Africa

Topic: Crop and livestock research and improvement

Date: October 29, 2021

Time: 9:00 – 11:00 AM EST or 1:00 – 3:00 PM UTC (this program will be recorded)

Location: Online via Zoom

Despite decades of work around the world to address cassava viral diseases, which are among the most devastating crop diseases in Africa, we are only just beginning to understand the complexity of the system. Continued international collaboration – and particularly robust inclusion of researchers on the continent, as well as sharing of data among labs around the world – will be critical to advance the research toward disease mitigation or prevention.

Speakers:

  • Vincent Fondong, Department of Biological Sciences, Delaware State University, USA
  • Justin Pita, WAVE Regional Center of Excellence for Transboundary Plant Pathogens, Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny, Côte d’Ivoire
