15 minutes: KRISP (and our work) at a glance

Here we provide you with a summary of the key aspects of our work in the form of news articles, blogs, tweets and publications.

In this new section of the krisp.org.za website, the idea is that anyone with 15 minutes to spare can learn about our work and its application in everyday life.

Bioinformatics tools: Computational methods for the identification of Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya and Yellow Fever Virus species and genotypes

Science and PLoS NTD - 2019-06-30

We recently produced open access phylogenetic typing tools to classify Arboviruses, including Dengue, Zika, Chikungunya and Yellow Fever Virus. These tools are been widely used by the scientific community and were published in Science (2018) and PLoS NTD (2019).

Promotion Sanger Sequencing at KRISP - 1 Jun to 1 Dec 2019

Promotion Sanger - 2019-06-01

KRISP is running a Sanger Sequencing promotion to celebrate the launch of two new Sanger Sequencers (ABI 3730xl and 3500). Unbelievable prices for the first 6 months. Capillary electrophoresis only – R 25 (per sample well). Sequencing of PCR purified amplicons – R 45 (per primer). Sequencing of PCR unpurified amplicons – R 75 (per primer).
