This month, we focused our newsletter on the new services and technologies available at KRISP. The newsletter also highlights our educational events (Talks, Wet-Lab and Dry-Lab workshops) and publications, including a paper on the increase of HIV-1 drug resistance in South Africa and another on the use of deep-sequence phylogenies to infer HIV-1 transmission networks
This issue's highlights are:
KRISP Services: KRISP provide access to high-throughput Sanger sequencers
KRISP Services: KRISP provide access to high-throughput Illumina sequencers
KRISP Services: New qPCR & TaqMan Arrays microbial panels (Gastrointestinal, Pulmonary and STIs)
