Less than 2% of African genome has been analysed despite the huge genetic diversity in Africa. The global shortage in Biotech talents available for precision medicine, genomics and drug development has contributed to low genetic research and products in Africa.
At HackBio, we train Africans in Bioinformatics and its applications in genomics, drug development and precision medicine. By so doing, we are strengthening Biotechnology companies in Africa and increasing our preparedness in the case of both endemics and pandemics.
This is done through 3 simple steps:
1. We absorb motivated scientists
2. We convert them to high performing talents through our academy
3. We connect them to their dream job or opportunity
