Mr. Jonas started his undergraduate studies in the exact sciences but ended up with an Honors in Biochemistry. His education officially fused biological and exact sciences when he finished a Masters in Bioinformatics at the South African National Bioinformatics Institute, University of the Western Cape. The multi-disciplinary nature of Bioinformatics has equipped him to address problems and find solutions for very varied challenges at SADaCC. “... I am passionate about capacity building and hope to play my part in addressing this challenge...” As part of his commitment to contribute to the SADaCC and GeneMAP ethos of beneficence, he is studying towards a Masters of Public Health with Epidemiology as focus.
