As part of the One Health approach with the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) and CDC-Atlanta, Arnaud Orelle conducted a practical training on molecular diagnosis (by PCR) for animal pathogens in CNERV, Nouakchott, Mauritania on July, 25-29, 2016.

Some theoretical lectures about molecular biology and PCR were given along with a practical review of several processes, encompassing RNA extraction (using manual methods), conventional PCR theory and real-time PCR. Training priority was given to the PCR technique, appropriate quality controls, running conventional PCR and to the interpetation of real-time PCR runs.

We thank and acknowledge the GHSA and the CDC for their support and all the participants, actors, laboratory manager and staff for their collaboration.
