What is CABANA?
- CABANA is a capacity strengthening project for bioinformatics in Latin America.
- It aims to accelerate the implementation of data-driven biology in the region by creating a sustainable capacity-building programme focusing on three challenge areas – communicable disease, sustainable food production and protection of biodiversity.
- CABANA is orchestrated by an international consortium of ten organisations - nine in Latin America and one in the UK.
- CABANA is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) - part of the UK Aid Budget – from October 2017 to December 2021.
