This month, we focused our newsletter on KRISP on the road. We are criss-crossing the country to showcase our new DNA sequencing and bioinformatics capacity. . In the newsletter, we also cover our high-throughput Sanger and Illumina sequencing services, arapid, reliable and cost effective HIV-1 Drug Resistance Service in Africa and many of our publications on viral outbreaks, mental health and industrial biotechnology.
This issue's highlights are:
KRISP & DIPLOMICS Initiative: Genomics Africa: Bringing genomic technologies to africa to fight our great challenges: loss of biodiversity, famine, migration and diseases
Business Breakfast: Decoding the SA Indian Genome for Health Risk
Workshop: Unlocking Informatics in Virology
Mobile lab: KRISP mobile team tracking viral outbreaks in real-time in Brazil
