The course has finished successfully!
Today was the last day of the course. We all had a great experience, and the students have learned a lot of things that now they will be carrying with them to their host institutions. Many of them were talking about starting to work with Drosophila, and all of them agreed that the course changed their way of thinking about doing science in Africa, which I think it is one of the greatest achievements that we could do. We have run a questionnaire among the students, and we are planning in publishing a paper where to explain in detail how to set-up a course of this kind in East Africa, and where we will show the conclusions from the student's questionaires, and a follow up on the students' research before and after the course . More updates will follow here. Please if anyone would like to have more information on the course drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
