Metagenomic Next Generation Sequencing to Detect, Identify, and Characterize Pathogens International Verified Date 41 41 days until deadline

Deadline: January 13, 2022
Maximum Award: $200,000 USD

Recognizing barriers for adoption of next-generation sequencing in global health, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has partnered with the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to enable populations in low- and middle-resource settings to benefit from cutting-edge pathogen detection, discovery and characterization. This partnership will provide highly specialized training in biosample preparation and sequencing to technical staff from awardee global health centers. Trainees will learn to use the open-source, open-access IDseq software developed by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) for the global health community to upload and analyze sequencing data, among other software such as Nextstrain. The BMGF-CZ Biohub-CZI partnership will therefore aim to provide selected applicants the benefits of onsite next generation sequencing and rapid pathogen detection to better understand their local pathogen landscape.


The Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA), an initiative of the African Academy of Sciences and the New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD), in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has launched two requests for proposals for Grand Challenges Africa - Innovation Seed Grants
