The culture of Uganda and its age-old tradition attract many foreign tourists
Uganda tourism statistics show a gradual increase in the number of tourists to Uganda in 2021. Thanks to the reopening of tourism, Uganda is expected to welcome more international travelers in 2022.
The culture of Uganda is made up of more than 50 tribes, including Ugandan indigenous people, and a small population migrated from Europeans, Asians, and Arabians. There are four main ethnic groups in Uganda, including the Bantu, the Nilotics, the NiloHamitics, and the Hamites.
The importance of culture in Uganda has been recognized through the cultural values it brings to the community. In this diverse culture, the traditional dance has always been a part of Uganda's identity. Each ethnic community has distinctive dances with different meanings and purposes, making it easy for visitors to distinguish between the tribes. Local people often integrate these dances into their day-to-day life to keep and share cultural values with different generations.
The "Gomesi" and the "Kanzu" are traditional costumes in Uganda. The "Gomesi" is a national dress in Uganda that Ugandan women often wear at events or ceremonies, while "Kanzu" is worn by Ugandan men during cultural functions.
Some cultural sites for travelers to immerse in cultures and traditions in Uganda
The best way for travelers to understand the diversity of new cultures and traditions in Uganda is to interact with the local community.
Going off-the-beaten-path in Karamoja village, travelers can discover the unique culture of the local people through their dress code, traditional dances, and local crafts. Karamojong people are mainly semi-nomadic pastoralists living in the North Eastern region of Uganda for hundreds of years.
The Ndere Cultural Center is set up with the primary purpose of maintaining Uganda's culture alive. This Center is an ideal destination for travelers to understand different cultures in Uganda. They can enjoy the cultural song and dance performances with handmade instruments from various tribes in Uganda.
Before departing, travelers should consider purchasing travel insurance that will help them cover their medical expenses should things go wrong and provide them additional benefits on their cultural tours in Uganda.
Uganda Immigration Services recommends tourists to apply for Uganda e Visa online beforehand

Parse Biosciences Launches CRISPR Detect8.6.2023 15:07:00 EEST | Press release
Parse Biosciences, a leading provider of accessible and scalable single cell sequencing solutions, announced today the launch of CRISPR Detect, enabling single cell pooled CRISPR screens at unprecedented scale. Bulk pooled CRISPR screening has been a valuable tool to understand gene function on a genome scale. Adding single cell resolution to pooled CRISPR screens pairs individual gene perturbations with rich whole transcriptome expression phenotypes. This approach has expanded the capabilities of pooled CRISPR screening to understand cell types of perturbed cells and quantify changes in gene expression, regulatory networks, signaling pathways, and other complex signatures. However, the applications and scale of these studies have been limited by the throughput and cost of droplet-based single cell RNA-seq technology. CRISPR Detect brings the scale of existing Parse Evercode technology to single cell CRISPR screening by enabling users to pair perturbations and transcriptional profiles
