Botswana Baylor Comic Book - Arabic




Genome Adventures is an innovative Wellcome Trust-funded community engagement initiative of the Collaborative African Genomics Network (CAfGEN). CAfGEN is a member of the Human Heredity and Health in Africa Consortium (H3Africa) and is coordinated by the Botswana-Baylor Children's Clinical Centre of Excellence (COE). Genome Adventures utilizes capacity building workshops, educational comics, and social media to engage community stakeholders, media practitioners, and the general public - especially the youth - in genomics and biomedical research. Our Genome Adventures comic book series aims to educate readers on the history of heredity and genetics, the structure and function of DNA and genes, the link between genomics and health, and the process for enrolling in a biomedical or genomics research study, including ethical issues pertaining to informed consent, sample shipping and storage, and community engagement.
