Bioinformatics in Sierra Leone via Raspberry Pi

last modified Jul 19, 2018 03:01 PM

In June 2018, Sudhakaran Prabakaran travelled to Africa to conduct a teaching workshop on machine learning algorithms at the University of Sierra Leone in Freetown.

Because of limited resources in the computational lab where this was arranged, participants were able to access course materials prepared by Prabakaran Lab members and deposited in the cloud using Raspberry Pi.

The workshop was funded by the Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Fund. This financial resource facilitates research collaborations between researchers at the University of Cambridge and institutions in sub-Saharan Africa.

The course was so successful that the Indian Govt’s Principal Scientific Advisor has invited Sudhakaran Prabakaran to design similar courses to enable students from remote corners of India to learn computing.
