Designing a course model for distance based online bioinformatics training in Africa: The H3ABioNet experience

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 5628786
PMID: 28981516
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005715

[…] oftware limitations and computing infrastructure were not a disadvantage. H3ABioNet has also invested in installing eBioKits at some of the partner nodes to facilitate training activities (http://www.ebiokit.eu/). The eBioKit is a standalone device that can run bioinformatics analyses independent of the internet. Although the use of the eBioKit is an efficient approach to overcome the challenge po […]


Bioinformatics Education—Perspectives and Challenges out of Africa

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4364068
PMID: 24990350
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbu022

[…] at while Internet performance is presently problematic in many places in Africa problematic at present, this is not uniformly so and the situation is changing ()]. The eBioKits initiative (http://www.ebiokit.eu/) tackles this challenge: it houses popular biological databases and tools such as Ensembl, NCBI-BLAST, EMBOSS, PLINK and functions as an affordable low-cost server by enabling computers to […]
