Workshop on molecular methods in vectorbiology and parasitology

Workshop: Molecular Methods in Medical Entomology and Parasitology

Workshop on molecular methods in medical entomology & parasitology took place in Tübingen from July 31st to August 13th.

Eight students and parasitologists from Cameroon and one from Tunisia came to Tübingen to participate in this workshop, together with German students. For two weeks, they concentrated on combining the classical techniques of medical entomology and parasitology with the methods of molecular genetic identification of vectors and pathogens.

The participants are biologists, doctors of veterinary medicine and postgraduate students from the Cameroonian universities of Ngaoundéré and Buea, from the regional centers of the Institut de Recherches Agronomiques pour le Developpement (IRAD) de Bambui et Wakwa and from the Ecôle véterinaire de l’université de Tunis.
