Practical Course on Quality Assurance of HIV-1 Drug Resistance Interpretation in Sequence Editing and Data Management Processes

ACILT - 2013-01-16

The African Centre for Integrated Laboratory Training (ACILT) present the HIV-1 drug resistance practical course, 22-26 April, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Learn how to:

- Determine the quality of sequencing data and understand the potential causes for poor data quality

- Understand the importance of sequencing and editing quality in the interpretation of HIV drug resistance mutations

- Properly use software for drug resistance analysis

- Maintain continuous data quality through proper training and following SOPs

- Obtain quality assured HIV drug resistance data

- Implement quality control measures to ensure quality sequencing data
