KRISP wants to challenge the status quo and create a scientific environment in (South) Africa that drives innovations in global health, reverses the brain drain and benefits the economy. KRISP staff are based in a state of the art building in Durban and have access to fast advancing technologies such as genomics, epigenetics, bioinformatics and epidemiology.
Bioinformatics is now a strategic area for Brazil and all Latin America and, therefore, it is also strategic to the development of Science, Technology and Economy. The X-Meeting is a Brazilian event with international reach which has an average of 400 participants.
The workshop is targeted at 400 clinicians, clinical virologists and nurses working in the public sector who are currently involved in the treatment of patients with HIV and TB in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
The workshop provides both theoretical and practical training in phylogenetic inference and evolutionary hypothesis testing. It is recognized as one of the best international virus bioinformatics courses. It covers sequence analysis, phylogenetics, phylodynamics methods and large scale methods for next-generation sequencing (NGS) analytics

This tool is designed to use phylogenetic methods in order to identify the HIV-1 subtype of a specific sequence. The sequence is analysed for recombination using bootscanning methods. The version 3 contains new CRFs (CRF01_AE to CRF47_BF).
