This workshop took place 22-25th August 2022 at the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) at Muhimbili, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. It was jointly run by UCL, UK and NIMR.

The aim of the workshop was to provide theoretical and practical training for all of the steps in the tuberculosis Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT) sequencing pipeline, from CTAB DNA extraction, DNA quantification best practice, library preparation and setting up a sequencing run, and analysing sequencing data. The workshop was run using a combination of theoretical, laboratory and bioinformatic sessions, with discussion and Q&A sessions throughout the workshop.
