“We kept learners engaged in a virtual setting” – Our COG-Train educators tell us about their experience

COG-Train provides open-access learning in SARS-CoV-2 genomics and is facilitating an increase in global genome sequencing and analysis capacity, reducing sequencing inequality, and helping to enhance pathogen surveillance. With two successful course launches, and an upcoming one, supporting over 4,000 learners to date, we spoke to some of the COG-Train educators and contributors to learn more about their experience, and the challenges they overcame in developing the course content.
